Why buy furniture when you can make it? Our instructors will take you on an in-depth and intensive journey into the fundamentals of furniture making. Come in with the desire to learn and leave with your very own table.

Over the course of 40 hours and 8 weeks, we’ll carefully guide you through every aspect of a professional furniture-maker’s process, allowing you to come away with the skills needed to make beautiful, heirloom-quality furniture — and your own hand-made table.

Class will start with the design process, where, in the course of learning how to design a piece of furniture, you’ll also learn the concepts that every professional woodworker takes into account when making a piece of furniture that’s meant to last.

From there, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the lumber yard and the lumber selection process which will culminate in a class field trip to a professional lumber yard where you’ll be guided through actually selecting and purchasing the lumber for your table.

The remainder of the class will take you through the process of expertly crafting your personal and custom table. We’ll cover traditional joinery, professional tips and tricks for construction of your piece, more advanced techniques in using the machines and tools in the woodshop, and finishing techniques to get the look and feel you want out of your furniture.
