In this class you will design and build a one-of-a-kind piece of finely crafted furniture. Starting with a discussion on wood's characteristics as a organic building material, we will create sketches and scale drawings of our pieces to map out joinery; select complementary wood; and discuss your designs to assure functionality, aesthetics and longevity.
Next, we will cover the machines and hand tools used for the dimensioning and shaping of rough lumber into finely crafted furniture, followed by an overview of various methods of joinery with a focus on floating mortise and tenon.
We will wind up the class exploring different finishes and embellishments techniques like texturing, painting, and woodburning.
