Traditional and new joinery techniques, shaping, finishing wood, jig design will be demonstrated along with innovative wood forming processes.  Stacking and nesting furniture, the use of different materials and basic upholstery techniques, will be encouraged.

Storage space, secret compartments and lighting, could be included in your project.
