At the Building Crafts College we value the traditional approach to the craft of wood working. We teach the traditional skills, utilising modern tools for contemporary industry requirements.

You will be taught how to form traditional joints using hand tools and how to produce setting out using the industry standard technical drawings. As you progress modern power tools and woodworking machines are utilised to produce Joinery to a professional standard.

As well as the practical element to the course, there are also theory work books that cover a range of topics from construction methods to timber and traditional jointing methods for a range of joinery products.
