Drafting For Furniture Making with Phil Lowe

The ability to render plans accurately on paper is an essential skill when designing a piece of furniture. Not only does it give you a record of what you are making, but more importantly, it helps you work out many construction details and allows you to accurately visualize the project. We welcome back nationally known author, instructor and furniture maker Phil Lowe, for this unique hands-on class. This course will begin with the use of the drafting tools and line definition, followed by the principles of orthographic and isometric drawing techniques. Students will begin by learning to measure and draw a small table. You will then learn to accurately draw the joints that will be used which will help to visualize the mechanics of the project. At that point a full size drawing can be made, incorporating all the joints and their relationship to the whole project. We will also explore techniques of developing accurate drawings from a photograph. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn these valuable skills from one of our leading craftsmen. Tuition $245.00 (plus materials)
