Furniture making course (for beginners) ENGLISH

  • Buurman 56 Vierhavensstraat Rotterdam, ZH, 3029 BG Netherlands (map)



The perfect starters course for everybody who wants learn more about DIY. In 4 weeks we will be making a sidetable/cabinet out of reclaimed wood.

How are planks cut out of a tree? What is the difference between pdf and multiplex? And between torkx and crosshead screws? Which machine is used for what? In 4 evening lessons we will take you through all the basics. From the different types of wood, to the tools you use to work them and how to make wood connections. The design of the side table is such that all basic techniques will be explained. From measuring, to sawing and sanding.

The lessons will take place in Buurman’s workshop, in the Keilewerf. Buurman is not only a wood workshop but also a shop for second hand building materials. Reuse is part of our DNA and we believe in the use of local (waste) materials. During the course you will thus be working mostly with reclaimed wood. We hope to inspire and teach you a lot during the lessons!

This course is given in English by a native speaker.
