Have you ever wanted to build a piece of furniture but didn’t know where to start? This class is for you. Through lecture and hands-on demonstrations, you will design and build your own unique object. Instructors will teach you project planning, lumber selection, safe use of woodworking machines and hand tools, beginning joinery, assembly, and finishing.
In addition to the weekday classroom time, there will be an optional field trip to the lumberyard and one additional weekend day that is dedicated to milling your rough lumber. Total instruction time is 42 hours.
Class schedule for class beginning July 2019
- Class: Wednesdays, July 10 to September 25, 6:30pm-9:30pm

Students should bring a pencil and notebook to every class. We will provide everything except for the wood, hardware, and finish that you will need for your project. The cost of project materials varies greatly based on the board footage and species of wood that you choose. Students should expect to spend a minimum of a couple hundred dollars on materials.
Class is limited to ten students.
This workshop requires that students first take Intro to Woodworking. This prerequisite class teaches the function and safe use of the jointer, planer, table saw, and bandsaw and also teaches the very important skill of how to mill rough lumber flat and square. In our experience, almost everyone who attends Intro to Furniture Making should also take Intro to Woodworking, but please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you think that you already have these skills and knowledge.
