Following on from Week1, Week 2 is for assembly of the now-dried components. You will be guided through the design and making process and will finish the course with a table which will last for generations. This course is only suitable for intermediate learners with some previous experience of green woodworking. (please see my Introduction to green wood furniture making on this site) It is especially suited for couples wishing to make their own table.
All the skills and techniques use readily available hand and portable power tools. There is also the option of combining green wood techniques with other materials, such as glass, stainless steel, etc. These skills can be taken home and with a modest outlay, you can make tables in your own workshop.
This course runs at the Devon Green Wood Centre in South Devon.
