Please enter a quantity.


This class is for students who have completed Intro to Furniture Making and who would like to continue their exploration of woodworking. Each student will design and build their own unique object. Instructors will be on hand to consult and advise throughout project development and production. They will respond to student projects and will teach tools and techniques that are specific to the projects proposed by the students. Students will have more time to work on more advanced projects. 

Students should email the instructor with ideas and sketches for a few different projects in advance of the start of the class. The first class will have students milling lumber, so come prepared to work with your wood. 

Total class time is 35 hours. Many students opt to take multiple sessions of this class to finish more complex projects. 

    Class schedule

    Classes are postponed through the end of 2020 due to coronavirus.

      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 at least a couple hundred dollars on materials.

      Class is limited to ten students.


      Intro to Woodworking and Furniture Making I: Tables are required. Furniture Making II: Casegoods is recommended but not required.
