Up-to-date report from one of our students!


Nationality: Korean
Course: Furniture Making & Restoration
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Jan. 14, 2019 - Jul. 26, 2019

I have two years of experience in working at a wood shop. My motivation to join the Accademia was to expand my knowledge of craftsmanship and to accomplish the master course. I see the incredible value of furniture design because there are no longer many carpenters as we've had in the past. Due to the advancement of factories and the machinery, there is no longer the beauty of fitted furniture which made me started to question.

Using the stucco method to fill in the chipped corners and dented surfaces. Let it dry over night and scratch away the excessives with a chisel.
There is a chipped surface big as 4-5cm in the middle of the bench. First, use the handsaw to gentle the rough edges and use vinyl glue to attach the substitute wood piece. The measurement of a piece is roughly a little bigger than the exact measure but to shape with a chisel. Once the glue is attached, hammer in a small nail to fix the piece.
