Three primary units of skills and ability are focussed on resulting in a number of projects.
FLAT-FRAME CONSTRUCTION – various tool and joint techniques to address the construction of framework projects.
CARCASE CONSTRUCTION – various tool and joint techniques to address the construction of boxed/carcase projects.
MACHINING & FINISHING – use of the lathe for turnery work as well as producing high quality finishes with varnish/oil/wax.
