Furniture Making for Beginners

Screen Shot 2019-04-13 at 5.27.36 PM

In this class we will be making simple furniture, coffee tables and bookshelves.

It is best to take the MIG welding intensive before taking this class.

We will cover, MIG welding, fabrication, using saws and shop tools, clamping up and making fixtures, grinding, drilling, oxy fuel bending and many other subjects.

This is a hands on class. Emphasis will be on working with the tools, and learning how to use them correctly as we go.

The goal is to orient you to working in a shop by doing so.

We will show you several reasonable projects that you can create. You can change almost everything about the project but we will have only a few types of material on hand to work with. We are located close to suppliers that can provide you with any type of steel or wood material you might wish to work with. We have plenty of woodworking equipment.

We ask that people build reasonably sized projects of not greater than four-ish foot in any dimension.

This class will be much more open ended and less structured. We will help each client with their project and teach tools and processes at each stage of the project work.

We do not expect you to finish your project in one class. You can sign up for successive classes to complete your project.

We have limited storage, it will only be available for your project if you have signed up for the following week.

Here are examples of tables and items that you could produce in this class.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule any class which is under enrolled. We refund any class which we cancel. Clients will be refunded in full for any class cancelled two weeks in advance. We do not re-schedule.


We transfer expertise from professional to enthusiast. We offer team-building exercises, welding and sculptural classes. We teach every conventional type of welding and computer numeric control of plasma cutting equipment. We can also teach fabrication, metal casting, and basic machine tool operation.

Rusty Is Radical. Great experience, great instructor! Metalwork is a lot like having super-powers! This five hour MIG welding class is designed to familiarize you with the required equipment and establish your confidence so you feel comfortable welding on your own. You will be introduced to different machines and can expect to walk out of the class ready to weld safely and independently. The workshop fee includes all shop materials and equipment; just show up.
