This comprehensive furniture-making course will aid in the development of skills that will result in rock-solid furniture.
Mortise and tenon joinery, which is at the heart of this Fundamentals of Furniture Making Course, is used extensively in tables, chairs, and other types of furniture. You'll master the mortise and tenon joint inside and out, as well as other useful ideas for building rock strong furniture, from scaling the joinery to suit your project to generating a flawlessly fitting joint.
Furthermore, solid wood tops with edge-to-edge glue ups are frequently required for furniture projects. Learn how to connect precise edges, get excellent color and grain matching in your top, and allow solid wood tops to expand and shrink annually.
The Course video (aff) instruction, created in collaboration with the Woodworkers Guild of America, is quite thorough, covering every stage of the process. This Woodworking: Fundamentals of Furniture Making course will teach you about:
- Project design
- Edge-to-edge glue ups for strength and beauty
- Mortise and tenon joinery
- Tapering legs
- Adding decorative accents to furniture projects
The American Guild of Woodworkers George Vondriska, the instructor, is a big believer in the adage that form should follow function, and he'll show you how to add minor touches to furniture to transform it from mundane to stunning. A simple router bit, for example, may dramatically improve the appearance of table rails. The top's edge has been undercut to give it a lighter appearance. The legs are slimmed down with a little taper. Fundamentals of Furniture Making includes video (aff) training that explains how to complete each of these steps.
This Woodworking: Fundamentals of Furniture Making Course includes downloadable resources and helpful information in addition to step-by-step video (aff) instruction, such as: A complete printable Guide, which is a woodworking plan for the table you'll build in your own shop while following along with George's techniques; and source references for any specialized tools used.
