DIY Flat Pack Furniture Intensive

For beginners who want to learn how to design and build their own custom designed flatpack furniture.

 

Participants will learn how to design and build furniture pieces using 3D modeling software, cut them with the CNC router (a big wood-cutting robot machine), and have the opportunity to build their own custom designs for cutting once the course is completed.

In this course you will:

  • learn how to design your own custom flatpack furniture by modifying one of our pre-prepared projects – a stool or a laptop desk
  • learn how to operate the CNC router + be certified to continue using the machine for your own projects
  • learn how to use Fusion 360 software for 3D modeling
  • learn how to use V-Carve software to generate tool paths for the CNC router
  • learn basic joinery styles used in flat pack designs
  • get help with assembly of your furniture piece
  • go home with your own custom modified stool or lap desk
