In this session, you'll learn about the different steps of making wooden furniture, and what you'll need to get started. The course is designed to be like a spring board, from which, you can start your dive into the craft. What this course is and is not: This is an introduction! We will cover broad topics and answer questions as we have time. We will have demonstrations and a few "hands on" attempts for students to try. While we will cover the principles of the furniture process in the course, we will not be making furniture in the class. We will have tips and considerations for expanding woodworking practices, but this is NOT advice on how to scale a woodworking business (that's it's own masterclass somewhere down the road). Class is intended to be 3 Hours Long
