Come design and build a one-of-a-kind table! Starting with a discussion on the characteristics of wood as a building material, we will then jump into design and create full-scale drawings. This workshop will cover all of the machines used for the dimensioning and shaping of rough lumber into finely crafted furniture, including getting the most out of the router utilizing pattern templates for fine details made easy. Participants will discover the structural aspects of joinery with a focus on using floating mortise-and-tenons. Finishes and milk paint will also be explored.

Penland School of Craft

67 Doras Trail
Penland, NC

6 week concentration
October 1 - November 10, 2023

This workshop explores the characteristics of wood and the creation of one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. We’ll begin with each student building a table, working from quick sketches to full-scale drawings, refining ideas, and developing an understanding of the set-up and operation of the tool involved. The rest of the workshop will focus on students building furniture unique to their imaginations and learning to break down the construction of complex pieces into single steps. Individual instruction will support each person’s specific areas of interest. All levels.
