In Introduction to Woodworking, students will engage in the foundational skills necessary to produce a piece of artisan furniture safely. Study will include design elements and concepts, fabrication methodology, aesthetic and working properties of wood species, finish types and their application, assembly techniques, machine and hand tool skills, and an introduction to artisan furniture as a means of personal expression. Given the basic materials necessary to produce a small table, stool, bench, blanket chest, or book case, students will explore design options within the parameters set by the volume and species of wood to be used, develop necessary fabrication skills, and produce a simple piece of furniture using basic joinery techniques.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
