Welcome to our One Week Introduction to Cabinetmaking Students

We are really pleased to welcome our six new One Week Introduction to Fine Furniture Making students to the school this week.

The students, hailing from both local and international destinations, from Borneo to the US have come - largely as complete beginners -to learn about the sharpening and use of hand and measuring tools, understanding basic workshop drawings, techniques for chiselling and planeing, timber selection and identification and understanding basic joints.

Our new tea tray project will put them through their paces on cutting accurate and sharp dovetails, and at the end of the week they will have produced this item to take home with them. It's a project that draws in all the new hand skills and techniques that they will have learnt during the week here.

You can follow more of their progress on our instagram and facebook pages.
