Learn how to use power tools and hand tools safely and effectively to build a piece of fine furniture. Class assignments introduce the core concepts and techniques required for most woodworking projects, including milling boards to straighten them, choosing and creating appropriate joints to connect them, and the careful handwork to finish everything well. Students leave with a strong foundation for more advanced wood classes and a small end table. All tools for learning are provided.
This class is a prerequisite for the CREATE Program, a way for students to use our studio space, tools, and equipment to work on individual projects.

Teacher Bio: Eric Blanpied
I’ve lived almost all my life in the East Bay, attended the Wood Technology trade school program at Laney, and have spent decades since building furniture. My desire to mix wood and metal in my designs brought me to The Crucible, where I now enjoy being a teacher of wood, and a student of metal. I love sharing what turns me on about these dynamic materials, and helping people chase their creative goals.
