Woodworking Essentials - 5-day - make a wall-hung cabinet



In this 5-day course, you'll make a wall-hung cabinet with a hinged door, while learning the foundation skills that professionals use to make simple furniture accurately and with a great finish. Over 5 days, Jonathan will teach you the essentials of woodworking, from selecting the best wood for the project, to planing, jointing, sanding and oiling the final piece to achieve a professional finish. The course will encompass modern and traditional joinery using English hardwoods, such as oak, ash and and sycamore. Jonathan will help you learn how best to use hand tools and some power tools, and how to keep them sharp and in perfect order.

All materials and tools for the duration of the course are included. If you would like to bring your own tools, we can show you how to set them up for fine, precision work. Tea, coffee, and biscuits are provided throughout the day. You can bring your own lunch, or buy lunch at Kilkhampton or Bude, each a 10-minute drive from our workshop.

The Atlantic Makers Collective (Atlantic Makers Ltd) was formed in 2020 in Bude, North Cornwall. The four directors share a passion for making fine furniture and we sought to build a workshop that not only produces exceptional furniture, but also benefits the local community. At the heart of this principle is sharing our resources and skills with talented, local makers and providing the space, facilities and support to help them grow their own businesses. We design and manufacture bespoke furniture for private and commercial clients, and run short-courses to inspire and nurture a love of woodworking. We also work with other designers and workshops to manufacture their furniture here in Cornwall. Our profits are used to grow the business, to support other makers within the Collective, and to employ and train Junior Makers and give them a strong start in the furniture-making industry.
