|This is a series of hands on furniture making classes that should be taken in succession as each project builds on skills learned in the previous classes. This series is not a required prerequisite for other classes contained in this schedule.|
A hands-on course that covers the basic concepts of woodworking and furniture making. This eight session class is a combination of demonstrations and hands-on practice. General shop safety (with particular concentration on using the tablesaw) is emphasized. Students will utilize the skills, techniques and tools (both power and hand-tools) being taught in the class in the making of a walnut jewelry box. This project could also be used to store a variety of other personal items. Skills learned will provide a strong foundation for subsequent furniture-making classes. Class size is limited to 12 students. Tuition: $395.00 plus materials ($59.00).

Thanks for a great class today at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking.
Just a quick note to thank you and Will for an excellent experience in the Chapin Class. I had to be home early and was not able to properly thank you for the additional time on Sunday. I have learned a lot in this class as I have in all of your programs. I’ll see you in the fall.
