The Center offers Intensives for students who are considering either furniture making or turning as a profession, a sababatical from a present career, or a life-enhancing skill.


Twelve-week Furniture Intensive

Our Furniture Making Intensive is designed to meet the needs of aspiring professional furniture makers and amateurs on sabbatical from other professions.  With two instructors available at all times and only twelve students, each participant is able to individualize the course of study to fit his or her interests and level of experience.


Eight-week Turning Intensive

The Turning Intensive prepares woodworkers for successful careers as professional wood turners, and is open to amateurs who wish to bring their work up to a professional level.
