Introduction to Woodworking
Fall 2016 quarter
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 methodogy, aesthetic and working properties of wood species, finish types and their application, assembly techniques, and 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, students will develop design options within the parameters set by the volume and species of wood to be used, develop necessary fabrication skills, and produce a small side table using basic joinery techniques.
