Thousands of students attend a woodworking class or school each year. Some have no experience whatsoever before enrolling, while others are quite familiar with the tools and techniques used to create furniture. Here is a small taste of the kind of work they are completing while studying.

“Liquor Cabinet”
Black walnut, maple, quilted maple veneer, Danish oil and bee’s wax
“I was inspired by prohibition style liquor cabinets where the cabinet was used to conceal the contents inside. Using Michael Fortune’s laminated door technique, the doors were created using a form in the vacuum press. The cabinet is finished with Danish oil and bee’s wax.” (Photo by Antonia Goga)
