Woodworking Students at the Hop

Woodworking Workshop

This workshop allows students to try their hands at furniture design, cabinetmaking, wood turning, carving and all aspects of woodworking.

Students of all levels of experience are encouraged to try out the shop, beginning with a Woodworking Orientation Session. The shop has extensive tools and machinery, including a 8'x4' cnc router, a 12"x24" laser cutter, a finishing room equipped with a spray booth, and a studio for matting and framing photos, prints, posters and drawings.  An extensive library of texts and periodicals on furniture design and construction is available for inspiration.

The Student Workshops are open to Dartmouth students at any experience level.
