Furniture Making Basics 3

Starting Your Path to Craftsmanship

This 5-day class is great for anyone, especially if you are self-taught. It will fill in the missing pieces of the woodworking puzzle and help you to understand wood.  A few of the techniques you will learn in this class are; the technology of how to make a flat board, square and true, panel door and drawer construction, and using the tools to accomplish the tasks. You will also learn how wood moves and why it does, which are essential to furniture building.  I will also be teaching how design is affected by wood movement.
