This course builds upon fundamental knowledge of solid timber design and construction to incorporate structures, surfaces and allowance for wood movement into larger furniture pieces that feature an elevated surface. The course is taught by a combination of readings, lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and supervised practice that exposes students to a combination of technology, theory, history, and design and making processes. Topics covered include observation/inventory of known functions and uses of surface, design ideation, scale drawings, timber selection, machine processing and joinery, and further hand tool techniques. Students will work both during and outside of class to design and make several samples or a small project followed by one major furniture project.
