Mid-Century Modern Secretary – 09/09 to 09/13 – Hands-on Class


Lumber Pack – primary and secondary wood, hardware not included *



Mid-Century Modern Secretary
Although most furniture of this period was factory-made, the Mid-Century Modern Secretary class offers the opportunity to build a stylish piece at the highest level of quality.

Mid-Century Modern Secretary

While the original of this piece is made in teak, using domestic hardwoods (a single species or a mix) can offer an exciting opportunity to highlight some outstanding figure. There are some great design and construction details that provide a significant challenge to even the most seasoned woodworker.

Some of the skills learned in the Mid-Century Modern Secretary class are:

  • Project design and layout
  • Tambour door construction
  • Side-hung drawers
  • How to select and layout your materials for your project’s best appearance

Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through us or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class.

Hardware for this project may be purchased through one of the vendors on the resources page.

  • Combination or machinist square
  • Bevel gauge; bench chisels

  • Dovetail saw
