Two Nightstands and a Mortising Jig - Weeklong


This ambitious class begins weeks before your arrival with the careful milling of components to precise dimensions by staff here in the shop (local residents have the opportunity to come to Puget Sound Woodworking on a custom-scheduled basis to assist with this process - the more exposure you get, the better).

Careful, experienced preparation sets you up on the first day to get off to a running start with more advanced joinery techniques and processes - there is a ton to do in this class and so the sooner you dive in, the better. Building on the skills and capabilities explored in the Fundamentals class, the Intermediate Woodworking class is designed to get you ready to take your skills to a professional level.

The nightstands will be constructed from black cherry, rock maple, ebonized black walnut and ebony, with additional figured hardwood species and details being chosen by the student while in class.

The mortising jig will be constructed with apple ply and will include all hardware.

I typically teach this class as either a weeklong, one-on-one session or a session for couples or pairs (in the case of pairs one nightstand goes to each student and if desired one extra mortising jig will be constructed for a small additional charge to cover the increased cost of materials . Please call to discuss these details.

The Intermediate Woodworking class is filled with incredible learning opportunities and personal attention. Puget Sound Woodworking prides itself on sharing all it can over the course of your class and looks forward to hosting you for this challenging and rewarding week!

A few notes about all of our classes:

Each line in the drop down at the bottom of this class description gives you all pertinent information for each upcoming class, including number of spaces remaining and the specific dates and times that each class is held. 

Spaces are reserved on a first-come first-serve bases.

Puget Sound Woodworking maintains small class sizes - the Intermediate Woodworking class runs at a size of 1 or 2 students per class.  This guarantees that you get plenty of hands-on, personal time with the instructor.

The cost of materials is factored in to the price of the class.
