Class Structure

This woodworking course is designed to equip you with the fundamental knowledge of machinery, power tools and hand tools operation. It is ideal for those seeking to solidify their understanding of woodworking, moving from DIY home woodworking into more industrial techniques. The class is project-based class and requires individuals to come up with their own project design under our guidance and executing it within 30 days.

We also have seasonal project kits for those who don’t have the confidence to design from scratch. Feel free to follow or deviate from the seasonal project.

Who is it for?

This class is most suited to those with at least 10-50 hours of woodworking experience and have a strong passion for woodworking and product design. You will be expected to design your own furniture project in fine detail, so students with no experience or poor visualisation ability might find the class less productive.  However, you can still attend the class without the pre-requisite, just be prepared to work extra hard.

We usually recommend a simple structured project like our Table Making Class for complete beginners.

This is also a great course for carpentry professionals looking to upgrade their skills from standard plywood carpentry.

Design From Scratch

You will be designing a small project from scratch and executing it. CAD work is not covered in the class, and all projects are designed on paper or directly on wood. Feel free to do your own CAD work and bring it along for consultation.

Class Fees

Class fees of $880 covers 4 weekly classes, storage of your project for 30 days and 1 hour bi-weekly consultation on your design.

Materials are charged separately, a price sheet will be forwarded to you for your planning purposes. Only wood materials sold by Tombalek will be allowed at the workshop.
