Peters Valley Furniture Making

Come explore the funda­men­tals of wood­work­ing while build­ing your own Shaker-style hall table using tradi­tional mortise and tenon joinery. We will take our boards through the entire milling process, from rough lumber to finished parts, while learn­ing how to use common wood­shop tools safely. We will cover lots of differ­ent machines and hand tools, but will focus mainly on getting comfort­able with the jointer, planer, and table­saw. This class is suit­able for all and is aimed to be inclu­sive to anyone who wants to learn how furni­ture making is done. Whether you’ve never used a drill before or if you have some expe­ri­ence and want to learn new tricks, this course will have some­thing for you. Every­one will leave the class with lots of new skills and a brand-new table!
