New for 2024, we’re bringing back more advanced and serious furniture making classes. Now open for booking, we are keeping to 4 students for the first batch.

This will be an 8 week program so we will need some time to find a suitable 3 month period to conduct the class. Classes will be held once a week, most likely on Saturday from 10am-5pm. Do drop us a text if you’re interested in a weekday schedule. We will need at least 2 students to start the class.

The class will include 8 full guided weekly lessons with all tools and materials provided. You will also be given 12 weeks to complete the project in total, after which you’d have to bring the project home.

Please take note that this is an intermediate level class, and is not recommended for your first furniture making project. If you have never been in a workshop before, this class will be too challenging for you. Do consider our single day projects to warm up first before starting this project. This project is done completely from scratch, so you will have to execute all the joinery, sculpting work and upholstery on your own.

This furniture making class covers the following topics:

  • Mortise and tenon joinery.
  • Sliding dovetail tenon joinery
  • Angled joinery.
  • Wood carving.
  • Blind stitching upholstery.
  • Use of bandsaw, sanders, mortiser and tenoner machines.
  • Basic hand tools use for adjustment of joinery.
  • Hand rubbed oil finish!

This chair should fit inside large family cars but it is slightly on the large side. We recommend booking a delivery service for bringing this home!

Price include all wood and materials. Feel free to bring your own cushion fabric measuring at least 1mx1.4m, and must be off a heavy gauge suitable for upholstery.
