Open to new users and those who would like to fortify and grow their skill base.
Taught by furniture maker Michael Burt, you will have a week full of learning, skill-building exercises, and sample work at a school wonderfully suited to lots of interaction and individual instruction.

Joinery with customization
Cutting shapes, cauls
Jigs and fixtures

While we complete projects throughout the week, this class is primarily a learning vehicle, and the projects shouldn’t be the only reason to take the course.
By the end of the week, you should have a good understanding of how to use the Shaper Origin as a tool in your workflow.
