The Means of Furniture Making $445•Purchase required to enroll
Design and construction are deeply interrelated pursuits, and a deep understanding of the basic principles is an foundational element of good craft. This 6 Week class will introduce the fundamental tools and techniques needed to design and build furniture. In addition to learning the purpose and proper use of common hand and power tools, students will be introduced to observational drawing and simple drafting techniques that will provide a basis for the proper layout and design of their work.
During the course, participants will make their own marking and layout tools, learning principles of proportion, drafting, and the selection, use, and maintenance of both hand and power cutting tools. Proper shop safety and etiquette will be introduced and reinforced throughout the course. All supplies are included.
The course will be team-taught by group of local practitioners, including Cliff Spencer (www.alasaw.com), Aaron Lane (www.lanewoodworking.com), Seth Weizenecker (www.weizwoodfurniture.com), & Bruce Lanier to provide a variety of different skill sets to this cohort of students.
This course will serve as a prerequisite to participation in subsequent learning opportunities in our Wood Shop.
