Maine College of Art - Woodworking & Furniture Design

42 Views · Published on Tue, 04 June 2019 · Furniture Woodworking

Woodworking and furniture design have deep New England roots - a tradition of transforming Mainegrown timber into functional artwork. At MECA, you’ll quickly move beyond basic woodworking skills into designing and crafting complete projects. You’ll learn to take your concepts from sketch to technical drawings, find your raw materials at the local lumberyard, mill them down to the required size and then get creative with steaming, bending, planing and joinery, using both classic and modern tools. The knowledge and connections you make here will prepare you for a career in wood craftsmanship—part of the next generation of talented New England-trained artists.
