Introduction Furniture Making


You don’t need experience or big, complex machinery to make furniture. You start with a solid plank of beech and with a little bit of help from us with the table saw you can make yourself a stool to take home, using mainly hand tools and a variety of joints. The next time you want to make furniture, you can do it at home with the experience you gained.
