What you'll learn in this furniture class:

Designed for beginners with little to no woodworking experience, this five-session class covers wood physics, shop safety and etiquette, an introduction to joinery concepts, and hands-on experience with the most commonly used woodworking machines.

The project for this class is a small side table featuring half-laps, bridle joints, and a round top. Each student completes their own table in class to take home with them.
The goal of this course is to build a foundation of skills and knowledge so you can work independently on simple projects or move forward with more advanced classes.
All tools, materials and safety equipment are provided.

Question from Karin G.
Is there anything we should know before coming to class, i.e. wear closed-toe shoes? Wear long sleeves?
Answer from Jenn C. 🐎CourseHorse Staff
Hi! The school advises students to wear shop-appropriate clothing, which means closed-toed and comfortable shoes (suitable for extended periods of standing), no loose or hanging items (includes jewelry, ties, scarves, etc. and long hair should be tied back). They provide eye and ear protection plus respirators, which are optional. Hope this helps!
Answer from Cody C. Verified Student
Probably best to wear closed-toe shoes in case you drop pieces of wood or clamps as you're working.

The workshop was a phenominal experience! The instructors clearly mapped out the project from the start, demonstrated the appropriate methods of using each machine, explained what to check before beginning work on each process, and maintained a friendly, professional attitude at all times. Limiting the class to 6 students allowed everyone's questions to be answered and provided the perfect balance for working individually and as part of the team. Watching other students use the machinery reinforced the steps we were taught to follow in set up, use, and safety. All materials necessary were provided. I look forward to continuing my education at Makeville Studio through additional classes, booking and booking studio time. I highly recommend this studio and this Workshop.

Excellent class. Perfect balance of hands on work and basic instruction. I felt like the class size was perfect and allowed each student to have one on one time but also enough time to work independently. I would highly recommend this class!

This class was awesome! Had a good time with Michelle, our instructor, and the other students. We learned a lot and I am so pleased with the little stool I made! Looking forward to taking more classes with Michelle at Makeville. :)
