What you'll learn in this furniture class:

Craft your own contemporary and minimalist side table, constructed using oak and classic half-lap joints

Woodworking is an age-old craft and one of the most versatile skills. With some woodworking know-how and the right tools, you can create anything.

Do you have a picture in your head of the perfect piece of furniture for your home, the one piece that will pull everything together and fit into that awkward little space in the corner? The piece that, no matter how many stores and websites you search, you can never find in real life? That’s because it’s up to you to build it yourself! This workshop will get you started with the skills needed to design and build the furniture of your dreams.

You’ll begin this workshop with a few pieces of oak. You’ll then cut and shape that oak into the individual parts of your table, using various power tools and hand tools. You’ll get hands-on experience using a mitre saw, a router table, a table saw and a belt sander.

You’ll then apply some good old “elbow grease” to ensure everything fits together precisely before assembling your masterpiece.

Skill Level : Beginner — This course is designed for beginners with little or no prior woodworking experience but includes some advanced aspects of woodworking so it can be enjoyed by people of all skill levels.

What You’ll Be Making : A small oak table, approximately 15 inches high with a 9 inch square top.

Length: 4 hours, give or take thirty minutes.

Class size: 4 – 6 people.

This class was delightful! The instructors were delightful, the other participants were delightful, and the project was delightful. I am certainly going to return in the future.

Reviewed by Amelia W. on 9/14/2022
The make a side table class was amazing with two truly fun, patient instructors that'd help you with your table and any problems you came across. You get to sand its edges how you want, though you won't paint it after it's made. It was neat to see what people made and they offered beer after the class. It is a lot of work in those 4 hours: we used 3 different types of (automatic) saws so it gave you a good taste of what a multi-week woodworking class would be like. Great place and can't wait to go back for more classes.

Reviewed by Sarah B. on 8/27/2022
This was an awesome class. It's amazing what I learned to do in four hours. Take 3 pieces of wood and transform them into a table, a very nice, sturdy, not wobbly table. The instructor was very experienced and answered all questions and helped us out whenever need- all with a ton of patience, encouragement , and enthusiasm. I look forward to taking another course at Craftman Avenue. The small class size was great the environment was comfy, had all the tools needed- measuring tools, clamps, etc.. it's a wonderful space, wonderful people. Well worth it in every respect
