Furniture Making Classes

Introduction to Furniture
$80.00 for 10 weeks

Thursdays, 6:30-8:30

In this class, the group chooses the type of project
that we will work on for the fall and spring terms.

Choose between a table or a bookcase.
Students can put their own spin on the project
by making their own design choices such as
an end table (with or without a drawer),
a sofa table, a coffee table, or a bench. You can
add a shelf to a table, or make the top live edge.
Examples of design choices for a bookcase are
solid sides versus frame and panel construction,
doors or no doors, or adding legs.

For either project, students can choose
the aesthetic style of the piece such as
Shaker, Arts & Crafts, Queen Anne, etc.

If you are joining the class in the spring,
you may want to consider simplifying the project
to be able to complete it in one term.

Furniture Making
$145.00 for 12 weeks

Tuesdays, 6:00-9:00

This is an advanced class,
students must have previous woodworking experience.

Most students in this class are enrolled in
the Master Furniture Program.
Students who complete the requirements of the program
earn a “Master Furniture Maker” certificate from Hill Institute.
This course of study takes an in depth look at
making early American period furniture.

Students must complete a series of projects that include
a Lowboy, a Hepplewhite Card Table,
a case piece (of your choice), a chair,
and a piece of your choice  (a table, a case piece, a chair, etc.).

You will learn to cut mortise & tenon and dovetail joinery by hand,
carve early American design elements such as shells and fans,
and inlay techniques including sand-shading.
You will learn to use hand tools in this class,
but it is not exclusively about using hand tools.
Power tools and machinery are also part of the program.

Space in this class is reserved for students enrolled
in the Master Furniture Program.
Please contact me at sharon@sharonmakesfurniture.com
to discuss enrollment in the program.

If you are not in the Master Furniture Program,
you may work on a furniture piece of your choice.

 I will not be showing my work at
Paradise City Arts Festival in 2018.

Please contact me if you would
like to discuss a commission.
