This course is for anyone who has an interest in furniture design and making.

No prior woodworking experience is necessary as you will be guided step-by-step through the different processes to create a piece of furniture.

This hands-on course will introduce you to a wide range of hand tools, machine tools and spray finishing techniques.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have a thorough understanding of the different workshop processes, and a finished piece of furniture (a coffee table with drawer) that shows how you have applied these to your project.
