Jointing, Planing and Welding

August 11, 2019 – August 17, 2019

Sophie Glenn

In this workshop students make a small wooden table to learn the basics of furniture making that includes milling and shaping lumber, joinery techniques and using a variety of woodworking machines and hand tools. As a bonus, participants have the option to add a steel component to their tables and learn the basics of MIG welding. A variety of finishes for wood and steel are also covered. Open to all skill levels.
