A Class In Fine Woodworking.

This series comprise two different pieces of furniture featuring an adaptation of the Maloof Joint or Double Rabbet Joint. The Lounge Chair and Side Table are made from square timber stock, so you’ll be learning the use of the bandsaw and routers to shape and construct the joinery. You can choose to do either projects, or take both classes consecutively. Note that the chair project takes about twice as long as to complete as the table project.

Next batch starting 9th-13th January 2019.

Flexible weekly time slots for your convenience.

3 hours each class.
+ 3 hours of course work each week.

Expect to spend 24 hours for the Table Project
and 48 hours for the Chair Project.
