12 Week Advanced Woodwork Project

Directed at those people who have completed one of our longer woodwork course, or those with confident woodwork skills, we offer a twelve day midweek opportunity to build an individual project.

During this course, run by experienced carpenter/joiner/furniture maker Ruth Thomson, you will learn how to manage a practical project from sketching it, making a technical drawing, writing a cutting list, costing, marking out and construction to produce a piece of wood furniture.

The group will visit a timber yard to learn how to select lengths of soft woods.
You will learn the safe use and versitility of a router, a biscuit jointer, a jigsaw and other power tools as needed and learn when and how to make jigs to help fabricate accurate shapes. Using basic workshop machines including a bandsaw and a belt sander, as well as classic hand tools, you will cut and assemble and then learn how to sand, glue and finish your project to completion.

We are happy to discuss your personal project if you already have something in mind. There is a size limitation due to time constraints and project storage. Call Alison on 0207 7607613 or send a photo or sketch to info@thegoodlifecentre.co.uk

Each learner will pay for their own materials. We can take delivery of timber if externally sourced. Please note that we can not handle MDF in the workshop as the dust requires special extraction and respiratory equipment. Plywood or solid timber will be pre-machined for you on our planer thicknesser and table saw.

Total cost £1200 plus materials.
