Craft a Side Table
(Introduction to Woodworking and Furniture Making)

Craft your own contemporary and minimalist side table, constructed using oak and classic half-lap joints

Woodworking is a hobby that has historically required a connection to someone who really knows their way around a workshop.

Are you unable to casually dabble in woodworking because you need tools and space, but you don’t want to commit to a woodworking apprenticeship?

We are here to be your woodworking plug. This workshop will get you started with the skills needed to design and build the furniture of your dreams.

You’ll begin this workshop with a few pieces of oak. You’ll then cut and shape the oak into the individual parts of your table, using a mitre saw, a router table, a table saw, and a belt sander.

Never used any of those? Don’t worry! Each workshop has a “guide” who is there to guide you (obvi)!

After tool time, you will make sure everything fits together precisely before assembling your masterpiece.

What You’ll Be Making : A small oak table, approximately 15 inches high with a 9 inch square top.

Length: 4 hours, give or take thirty minutes.

The “craft a side table” class was amazing! I’ve been wanting to try my hand at power tools for some time now and this class gave me the intro I needed. We had the opportunity to use a bunch of different tools. Highly recommend for anyone interested in learning a bit about woodworking and going home with a great piece.
