Beginning this fall, the UC CEAS Wood Technology Program is offering woodworking courses to all faculty and staff. From courses on how to set-up and maintain woodworking machinery to wood finishing and furniture drawing, the Wood Technology Program plans to leave no wood interest un-carved.

Courses are to be held in the Wood Technology Program location on UC’s Victory Parkway campus. These courses are suited for individuals seeking to learn the time-honored skills of furniture making, crafts and woodworking fundamentals. Courses will cover a wide range of woodworking specialties including: Furniture Construction, Furniture Drawing, Wood Technology, Wood Crafts, Wood Turning, Wood Carving, and Windsor Chair creation. Certificate options will also be available for those interested.

Experienced and knowledgeable instructors are teaching the courses. The Wood Technology Program will provide all the necessary hand tools and power equipment to complete the projects assigned with the exception of small carving knives for its carving class students. Each course charges a fee and students must pay for wood needed for assigned projects. The wood will be available for students to purchase in the Wood Shop, also located on the Victory Parkway campus.

The Wood Technology Program woodworking courses are:

  • 1000 level and (3) credit hours for each course.
  • BoK Fine Arts elective courses (In case you are working toward a degree).
  • Open to all UC employees (and students in all UC majors).
  • All skill levels are welcome: beginners, novice and experienced woodworkers.
  • Classes are taught: one day per week through the semester, on weekday afternoons or evenings.
  • Classes are limited in size so you will have plenty of time with the instructor.

The complete list of courses can be viewed at One Stop under the CEAS discipline "CBMK - Cabinet and Furniture Making" in the fall and spring semesters of the 2013-2014 academic year.

The Wood Technology program website is also now available and features examples of past students’ work along with a description of each class offered. For anyone with questions, please contact Mark T. Costello.
