Frames that carry weight, resist lateral forces, and support surfaces are a principal woodworking and furniture design form – tables, desks, benches, stools, etc. They challenge the craftsperson to think about questions of function, scale, structure, joinery and strength. In this class, students will learn to make a small table, using lapped, mortise-and-tenon, and other joints. They will experience how simple parameters can inspire creative solutions, working within size, material, and joinery constraints appropriate to the time and tools we have available. Concepts of structure and consideration for human scale will be addressed, as well as joinery, ornament, and finish. They will gain understanding of wood and wood selection, measurement and layout, human dimensions and scale, and safe and effective use of basic woodworking hand and power tools. They will acquire a deeper understanding of how mind, hand, and tool work together to shape expressive and functional forms. Careful attention will be given to sustainable concepts and wood sourcing to develop an appreciation for the effort, material and process required in the making of beautiful objects.
