Event Details

Woodworking Intensive


In this class, students will learn the basics of how to design and fabricate professional, long-lasting shop furniture out of wood. Students will work together to create one large, 40' long work table for the woodworking shop area at Artisan's Asylum, which will be designed to last 5 years or longer. Students will fabricate perfectly level torsion box work surfaces, several cabinetry carcasses and cabinet doors, a downdraft table and more over the course of the session, and the final product will be in active use by the rest of Artisan's Asylum for years to come.

Class Goals:

By the end of the session, students will learn how to use almost every tool in the woodshop at an intermediate level. This includes the use of the table saw, miter saw, router and router table, planer, jointer, hand drill, nail gun and more.


Basic woodshop skills a plus, but not required.


Materials will be provided by Artisan's Asylum.
