The Background - a guide to working with wood

The Wood-Shop Furniture Making Course is a practical course developed for home study and based on 8 projects which are influenced by the local vernacular of the North East of Scotland. This is followed by another 24 projects which are not covered in so much detail but should be achievable (easily, in most cases) on completion of the course.


The Background is in several sections: an introduction to wood, hand tools, techniques and some history to finish off with. It has not been easy to track the history of local furniture-making. I sometimes think we know more about the Pharoahs than we do about the joiners and their workshops or 'shoppies' of the 1800s which produced large quantities of domestic furniture alongside farm machinery and windows and
doors.
