What you'll learn in this furniture class:


This workshop introduces students to modern woodworking through an immersive experience of crafting fine wooden furniture. It is designed for beginners who want to get a hands-on introduction to woodworking and take home a beautiful product.

After a brief survey of principles and process, students will dive into their projects to make a small wood table. Our work will focus on joinery: measuring, cutting, and assembling wood connections. At the end of the class, students will get a finishing kit they can use at home to sand, stain, and seal their product.



Product Notes

Students will make a small table suitable for use as a planter or side table. It will be constructed out of oak using half-lap joints to create a flush assembly. The style is contemporary and minimalist, so it should fit well with any existing interior design.


Overview

Skill Level: Beginner — This course is best suited for beginners with little or no prior experience in woodworking. Those with some experience or knowledge should consider our Foundations of Woodworking course.


Tools and techniques: We will primarily use power tools (a table saw, drills, etc) with some assistance from traditional hand tools (chisels, planes, etc).


Length: 4 hours give or take thirty minutes.


Typical class size: 6-8 people.

The class was great! The instructors were knowledgeable, approachable and engaging. I learned how to use multiple new power tools and got a good overview of how to cut and build wooden objects. I would definitely recommend the class to someone new to woodworking.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the class! We had about 7-8 people in the class so everyone had to wait while one person learned to use the saw machines so that part sucked a little but other than that it was really fun :)
