Woodwork Class - Make a Spoon, or Two
In this flexible woodwork class (fixed starting time) you'll learn how to carve a wooden spoon. Choose a design, learn how to gauge out the bowl, and then cut the shape both on a band saw and by hand. From there you'll learn various carving techniques with hand tools and how to sand and finish the spoon.
Leave this course with a spoon or two, and the skill to make many more on your own. Availability is limited to eight people per session. Class is held in our workshop at 1340 E Pender St. in Vancouver. Materials are supplied. This is an entry-level woodwork class designed for students with little or no experience.

WHAT MAKES OUR FURNITURE SO GOOD?
THE RAW GOODS : LUMBER
Each wood board used in the making of our furniture is hand-picked specifically for Union Wood Co. We work directly with mills and suppliers that are able to deliver the premium planks with the character that we demand. Don’t be fooled, not all wood is equal! We can show you the difference between the really good wood and other lumber which can warp or shrink.
THE MECHANICS : JOINERY
All of the furniture created in our woodshop is made-to-order. Taking into account the end use, we always build our pieces with the intent to last a lifetime. Our woodworkers select the most appropriate joint for the piece and use both hand and modern tools to get the job done right. In dust we trust.
THE FINISHING : ENDURANCE
We use only the finest finishes on our furniture, natural vegetable oils and waxes which are derived from renewable resources. Hardwearing and extremely tough, our finishes are ideal for pieces that are put through their paces. Water repellent and resistant to wine, beer, coffee, crayons and other offenders, our finishing is easy to maintain and reapply (if needed).
