Starting with a hardwood plank, students will create a beautiful table lamp. All levels of woodworking experience are welcome. Detailed instruction on the safe and effective use of circular saws, jointer, planer and drill press will be a central focus but everyone will also have design input into the lamp they build. The design will include a unique post construction of 3 pieces glued together that create a center hole. Cut from the same piece of wood the perfect color match makes it look like its one piece. Students will need to commit to at least two hours of outside class time in order to finish their project.

Lamp shades are not included in the design


Safety Equipment

Please wear comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes to class. Avoid loose dangling sleeves, large jewelry, high heels, and neck ties. Long hair must be kept up and out of the way at all times. We will provide safety glasses, ear protection and dust masks, but if you’d like to bring your own, that is great too.
