Cabinetmaking training courses
Courses are held in the Savoy Rhone-Alps, a superb location, especially for mountain lovers.Various acommodations are available : gîte (cottage), B&B, or traditional country inn.
The desire to share and disseminate the knowledge of furniture and woodworking brought us to institute various adult training courses.
The courses are practical and utilize high quality manuals followed by immediate application on machinery.
During the cabinetmaking sessions, the trainees construct a piece of furniture that they keep at the end of the course.
Three types of classes are available :
- Initiation training - Advanced training - Wood finishing

The second course is intended for people who already have a good grasp of wood. Machinery used for curved work-pieces as well as the use of a spindle moulder (=shaper in US) will be extensively used. Trainees will construct a cupboard with door, which will include the manufacturing of a drawer with dovetails in the old style. After such a course (always documented), trainees will possess the ability to design and manufacture any type of solid wood furniture. Training for this course also lasts one week.
