Beginning this fall, the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science's Wood Technology Program will offer woodworking courses to all faculty and staff 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. 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 three credit hours for each course.
  • BoK Fine Arts elective courses (for those working toward a degree).
  • Open to all UC employees (and students in all UC majors).
  • Available for all skill levels — beginners, novice and experienced woodworkers.
  • Offered one day per week through the semester, on weekday afternoons or evenings.
  • Limited in size so participants 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 2013-14 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.
