Wooden furniture making has wide appeal to both the artisan and practical woodworker. Learning the wood working skills to produce a piece of furniture that will adorn your home is something that will stay with you throughout life, giving you the opportunity to be surrounded by high quality and unique wooden pieces - or simply furniture that exactly suits your needs and tastes. Sometimes referred to as cabinetry or cabinet making, this type of woodwork requires a great degree of fine detailing - and craftsmanship! The courses on these pages range from traditional chair making workshops, to furniture making courses which will equip you with skills to base a career on.
