Product Design Wood Working

Fall 2021

Taught By: Scott Peltzer

Section: A

CRN: 12201

Credits: 3

In this studio students will be introduced to the design and production of wooden multiples through hands-on exploration in areas such as: furniture, case goods, tabletop and so on. Building on skills learned in PUPD 2027 Models, Mock-ups, and Prototypes (or other verified shop knowledge) students advance woodworking skills and explore a variety of shaping, joining, surfacing, and finishing techniques. Students are introduced to jig making, CNC routing, and systematized clamping and gluing. Work may include veneer bending, steam bending, turning, and so on. While students work at small-scale one-off production, class discussion and assessment focuses on how their products would be mass-produced. Emphasis is put on creating high performance, durable, ecological, cost effective manufacturing and product production strategies. While honing woodworking skills, students will also have opportunity to investigate experimental methodologies and techniques.

Open to: All university undergraduates. Pre-requisite: Verified shop knowledge and safety including previous course work and assessment of portfolio or professional experience. Onsite testing may be required for safety verification.
