    Furniture Making and Cabinetry Beginners Course

    In this course you will learn the basics of fine furniture making and cabinetry, you will be making a foot stool with mortice and tenon joints, some by hand and some with more updated machinery.

    Please be mindful that it is a long day and will be fairly tiring on your mind and body, so be ready and on good form to get as much as you can out of me!

    I will be providing safety lessons on bandsaws, planer thicknessers, bench grinders, chisels etc, and guidance throughout the day, giving advice and techniques where I see fit.

    Furniture Painting Workshop – 1 Day (10am to 3pm) Grappenhall, Warrington

    Attending a furniture painting workshop is a fun and rewarding way of quickly and easily learning the skills required to get creative with your furniture and interiors. You will learn all about the preparation required for your furniture (no need for stripping, priming or heavy sanding), the different paints, brushes and other products available and the pros and cons of each. Also, about the tips and tools of the trade and the wide variety of different techniques and ideas available for creatively painting your furniture.

    You will learn a variety of creative techniques including crackling, dry brushing, glazing, distressing, two colour, stencilling, waxing, blending, finishing and paint protecting techniques, and you will be able to bring your own piece of furniture to transform using your newly learned skills during the workshop.

    You will return home full of inspiration and the know how to continue with your own projects with the reassurance that I will be on hand to give you further advice and guidance after the workshop, if required.

    Each workshop will run from 10am to 3pm with lunch break and plenty of coffee/tea/cake in between – my Mum’s delicious scones and gorgeous cakes are becoming very popular among workshop attendees.

    Please don’t worry if you are a complete novice! I will explain everything from the beginning during the course.

    The numbers are kept small (6 to 8) so I will be on hand for one-to-one instruction as much as you need during the day.

    Everything you will need for the workshop will be included i.e. chalk paints, brushes, waxes, practice board etc.

    Our lovely Re-Colour Furniture CHALK PAINT will be available for you to buy should you wish to continue with your own projects at home.

    Cabinetmaking Fundamentals

    This course is aimed at the complete beginner or the woodworker who has some experience but wishes to get back to the basics of cabinet-making in order to produce woodwork of a high standard.

    If you have never used a well tuned and set up plane, or a razor sharp chisel, this course will be a revelation, and when you understand the basics of cabinet-making you will realise that ‘engineering in wood’ to minute tolerances is not only achievable, it is also joyful!

    The main purpose of this course is to develop essential hand skills and give a good understanding of the main cabinet-making principles.

    Planing, Sawing and Chiselling are the three critical elements needed for shaping and jointing bits of wood together, so you will be given some good solid technique and exercises to help you practice and conquer these vital skills. Setting up a plane to take gossamer-thin shavings, planing strategies to deal with misshapen pieces of timber, chopping and paring to a knife line with a chisel and bringing a bit of Zen into sawing to make it a focussed, precise process.

    To see how things are progressing you will prepare and join several pieces of wood together to make a cheese-board, this will give you a chance to get some calm, composed gluing under your belt, adding some tapered chamfers with a wonderful ‘finesse tool’, the spoke-shave, will complete this little project.

    Jointing pieces of wood together is what woodwork is all about, so we’ll also look at how to accurately prepare components, planing, gauging, scribing and squaring ends using a Shooting Board. Having planed up some crisp, precise components, you will have the chance to put your new Sawing and Chiselling skills into practice by setting out and cutting a Through Dovetail.

    Sharpening & Tuning Woodworking Hand Tools

    This course is aimed at the woodworker who has some experience but who wishes to learn how to tune or ‘fettle’ a basic woodworking tool-kit and how to sharpen blades to ‘razor sharp’ using a combination of grinder and bench stones. If you have never experienced the joy of working to very fine tolerances, using a plane that is well set up, with a razor sharp blade, this course will be a revelation!

    The main purpose of this course is to emerge with a set of tuned/sharp tools that will allow you to make furniture to a very high standard.

    Students are expected to bring along whatever woodworking tools they may have for evaluation and discussion. Advice will be given on buying new or used tools before or during the course, and various tools and sharpening systems will be available to try and buy.

    Furniture Making SKILLS WEEK – Sharpening & Essential Cabinetmaking Hand Skills

    The Cabinetmaking Skills Week is the course you’ve been waiting for. If you’re a complete beginner, this will give you the perfect grounding; if you’ve been woodworking for a while, this will be a great tune-up, sorting out any bad habits and reinforcing fundamental skills.

    Everything in Woodwork is based on Sharpening, so this is the initial focus. You MUST have a sharpening system at your fingertips that works for you, we will look at angles, the exotic and not so exotic steels used for blades, high speed grinders, water cooled grinders and bench stones. You will learn a method of sharpening freehand, but you will also learn how to use honing guides – it’s quite OK if freehand honing remains an aspiration for the moment. Western dovetailing and cross-cut saws are great to use, but they also need to be super-sharp, so we’ll look at sharpening these too.

    Planing, Sawing and Chiselling are the three critical elements needed for shaping and jointing bits of wood together, so you will be given some good solid technique and exercises to help you practice and conquer these vital skills. Setting up a plane to take gossamer-thin shavings, planing strategies to deal with misshapen pieces of timber, chopping and paring to a knife line with a chisel and bringing a bit of Zen into sawing to make it a focussed, precise process.

    To see how things are progressing you will prepare and join several pieces of wood together to make a cheese-board, this will give you a chance to get some calm, composed gluing under your belt, adding some tapered chamfers with a wonderful ‘finesse tool’, the spoke-shave, will complete this little project.

    Jointing pieces of wood together is what woodwork is all about, so we’ll cut some Through Dovetails and through, wedged Mortice & Tenons. Cutting a groove and inserting a veneered bottom will complete an elegant ‘Water Biscuit Box’ to perfectly compliment your board.

    Chair Making at Sallerton Wood

    These six-day greenwood chair making courses cover all the green woodworking skills and processes needed in order to construct your own chair from a green Ash log. The techniques include cleaving out and shaping the components, drying some of the components overnight in the wood-fired kiln, steam-bending some of the components to give them the correct form, cutting and drilling mortises and tenons, frame assembly, and finally weaving the seating material.

    There is a range of chair designs to choose from, to suit all abilities, and a range of seating materials. Some previous green woodworking experience is helpful, although not essential, for this course. Spending a week working in the woods, being so close to nature, using wood from the woods and hand tools to produce a beautifully unique piece of furniture is a deeply fulfilling experience. On top of that, the sense of achievement gained from having made your own chair that will last for generations is something very special.

    The course tutor is Andy Morton, an experienced worker in green wood and in timber-framing. There is a limit of 6 students per course to allow for good personal tuition throughout the course.

    All tools and materials required for your course are provided. Each participant will be allocated their own set of tools at the beginning of the course to use for the duration. Sallerton wood is extremely well stocked with straight grown Ash, perfect for green woodwork projects.

    Sallerton Wood is 10 acres of beautiful mixed deciduous woodland with a stream running through it. It is situated south-east of Launceston, close to the River Tamar on the Devon/Cornwall border. All courses take place within the heart of the woodland itself. There is a large, well-equipped workshop shelter, and a timber-framed utility shelter for cooking and tea-making. The utility shelter is equipped with a large dining table, pans, utensils, and a wood-fired clay oven and rocket stoves for use during courses.

    Wild camping is offered within Sallerton Wood. Facilities provided are a site within the woodland to pitch a small tent, a compost toilet, piped spring water for washing and cooking, and drinking water supplied separately. There is a small washroom containing a wash basin and shower, both with hot and cold water. For those who do not wish to camp, or require more than the wild camping facilities offered, there are many local accommodation options, and some suggestions are available on request or via our website.
