Bachelor of Fine Arts: Wood Concentration

The wood program offers a strong foundation in woodworking and furniture making. The course is composed of a series of eight classes that focus on different aspects of woodworking and design; plus general education requirements.

Each semester concentrates on one of the primary furniture forms, tables, cabinets and chairs, while at the same time, the major technical areas, joinery, bending, shaping and finishing are studied and practiced. Smaller assignments based on secondary furniture forms focus on the specialist areas of veneer, inlay, structure, and production. Special problem classes in turning, technical drawing and hand tools, round out the curriculum.
