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 both hand tools and machinery. The project for this class is a small side table with tapered legs.

This course will give you the confidence and knowledge to work safely in the shop on your own projects and/or to move forward with more advanced woodworking classes.

Frankie Lynn H.

Attended: Intro to Woodworking
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.

I had a time in this great class with the very good instructor, Michelle. I'm definitely looking forward to more classes at Makeville.

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. :)
