About the Course
This beginners furniture making course is for anyone who has an interest in furniture design and making.
No prior woodworking experience is necessary as you will be guided step-by-step through the different processes to create a piece of furniture.
This hands-on course will introduce you to a wide range of hand tools, machine tools and spray finishing techniques.
On this course you will:
- be inducted into our well-equipped product design workshops
- use tools such as dimension saws, surface plainers, thickness plainers, flatbed sanders, routers and spindles
- explore different finishing techniques that will make your piece truly unique.
What will you gain?
By the end of the course you will have a thorough understanding of the different workshop processes, and a finished piece of furniture (a coffee table with drawer made from oak) that shows how you have applied these to your project.
