Melbourne School of Fine Woodworking
melbourne school of fine woodworking (msfw) is a not for profit woodworking club located at Box Hill in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.
We provide ongoing daytime and evening tutor groups, specialist workshops and project based courses in fine furniture making for beginners through to experienced woodworkers.
Professional designers and furniture makers teach students in small classes with an emphasis on using hand tools and techniques. Our facilities include a workshop equipped with workbenches and hand tools for each student and a separate machine room.
We welcome applications from anyone wishing to broaden their skills and design and make furniture for their own enjoyment in a supportive environment. Previous woodworking skills are not necessary, but success in fine furniture making does require patience and attention to detail.
