This seven-session workshop equips students to move safely and strategically in the ADX Wood Shop by diving into the building of a serious piece of furniture: a Shaker-style live-edge bench or small table. Explore the basic principles of lumber selection, hand tool and machinery safety, milling, mortise and tenon joinery, and finishing. Take the project from blueprint through completion, learn to both organize and conceptualize a furniture project, and practice being in the wood shop environment. The content and combination of machinery used will expand student’s ability to problem-solve and make confident, independent decisions while using the joiner, planer, chop saw, table saw (including dado blade), mortiser, biscuit joiner, chisel, hand planes, and sanders.
