Woodworking: Casework for Storage
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
Students will engage in the foundational skills necessary to produce a piece of artisan furniture safely. Study will include a cultural survey of casework constructed for storage (chests, cabinets, tansu), elements of design, joinery and fabrication methodology including coopering (optional), machine and hand tool skills, the working properties of wood species, assembly techniques, finish types and their application, fabrication of hardware, mixed media furniture, and an introduction to artisan furniture as a means of personal expression. Given the basic materials necessary to produce a storage chest, tansu, coopered storage container, or book case, 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 simple piece of furniture using basic joinery techniques.
