Description

This class takes students through the complete process of creating a piece of furniture. Starting with rough lumber, we cover what to look for and how to select wood for your project. In the woodshop, students will gain advanced skills in project planning, the use of hand tools and machines, and how to cut joinery. We'll use nearly every machine in the shop! At completion, students will not only have built their very own table, but also have the skills and confidence to begin their own journey in furniture making.

Limited design variation is permitted due to time constraint.

Students should bring a pencil and notebook to every class. We will provide everything except for the wood 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 may purchase a lumber package from us, available in select domestic hardwoods, or bring their own lumber to the second session of this class.

Total instruction time is 18 hours and limited to two students. If there are two students, both must make tables of the same dimension and design in order to complete the project within the given amount of time.

    Class schedule
    Shortly after purchasing the class, you'll receive an email from us about scheduling. 

    Prerequisite
    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 milling rough lumber flat and square. In our experience, almost everyone benefits from taking Intro to Woodworking, but please email hello@alliedwoodshop.com if you think that you already have these skills and knowledge. 

    We also recommend that you take Intro to Joinery, although it is not required. This class builds on the basics of milling, introduces the concept of wood movement, teaches how to cut boards to specific dimensions accurately and precisely, and presents basic wood joinery. 

    Instructors
    Each private class will be paired with one of our talented and experienced instructors.
