Woodworking II: Chair - February


Dates: Sundays 2-6pm, 2/24 to 3/31

This 6-week intermediate-level workshop takes you step by step through the typical furniture-making process: design, layout, cutting, joinery, assembly, glue-up and finishing. Working with machines and jigs, you will build a solid hardwood chair. You will learn two techniques to cut mortise and tenon joinery and use the table saw and router to shape parts. We will focus on machine set up and organization to get accurate, repeatable results. Topics covered include: 

  • How to layout parts, make a cut list and estimate materials/cost from a design

  • Milling rough lumber using the jointer, planer and table saw

  • Cutting tapered parts on the table saw and how to build a taper jig

  • Mortise and tenon joinery using two methods: plunge router with table saw and Festool Domino joiner with loose tenons

  • How to use the router table and templates to create exact copies of a part

  • Strategies for gluing and clamping

    **Prerequisite for this class is completion of Intro to Woodworking or Workshop Certification or equivalent experience with instructor pre-approval.**
