Advanced Woodworking is an exciting progression from Intro to Woods into furniture design and construction. Each student will make a functional and practical furniture project that can be admired long into the future. Past projects have consisted of fancy jewelry boxes, round end tables, rectangular end tables with lathe turned tapered legs and Shaker side stand tables with lathe turned column. Advanced joinery techniques will be used such as mitered corners with splines, hand cut mortise and tenon joints or sliding dovetails. All projects will have a lathe turning element along with personal design interests. This course fulfills the Fine Arts requirement for graduation. This course is not weighted and will not be included in a student’s ranking GPA.
