School of Woodworking
More than 20 years ago, our craftsmen began teaching fine, hand-tool woodworking and furniture-making skills at our woodworking school. Since then, thousands of students have benefited from our classes. More recently, we’ve added free online videos and kits so that students can continue to develop their skills at home.
In our woodworking classes, you will learn how to use centuries-old skills to produce heirloom furniture that will last for generations. We begin with our foundational series courses. In these, you’ll learn all how to properly sharpen your tools and how to make the basic joints used in making fine furniture, then you’ll use these skills to make several pieces of furniture.
After our foundational courses, we offer a range of advanced furniture-making courses, from making several styles of chairs and rockers, to dressers, tools, workbenches and blanket chests. We also offer a variety of wood carving workshops and special-interest courses where you can learn skills such as inlay and furniture finishing. And we offer several courses on how to make musical instruments.
