Introduction to Woodworking and Wood Turning

The Spindle Furniture series is designed as an introduction to woodworking and wood turning. The three projects – table, stool and chair – are each made out of hand-turned spindle legs fastened by wedged-tenon joinery to a solid seat or top. Each furniture project covers a different level of wood carving complexity. Choose to start with the simplest table piece, or challenge yourself with the most advanced chair piece. Better yet, bring home a full Spindle Set completely handmade by you.

Who is it for?

This series of furniture-making classes is beginner-friendly. Each project is expertly supervised by our team of instructors, ensuring fine details of each woodworking and wood turning step are covered. The level of wood carving complexity and physical intensity ranges with each furniture project.

Students need to be at least 16 years old to attend unsupervised.

For younger students age 12-15 years, please request for an instructor-aided class.
