Whenever we make anything it must do the job it’s designed to do AND look good. All woodworkers, regardless of skill, need to know that what they make will work. Furniture should be well-made, look good, and fit nicely into its surroundings. In this weeklong class, Graham covers the whole gamut of design essentials. Students will learn about function, construction, and proportion—the three pillars of design. Graham will discuss how to choose the right wood and joinery for the job and students will discover the secrets of good design—it’s not about being an artist but about learning topics like the Hambridge Solution and the Golden Mean. Whatever your level of woodworking expertise or experience, good design is the essential first step to making any kind of furniture.
