Advanced Joinery - Tuition and Materials Considerations

Tuition / $1,250           Lumber for Course / $200 + $12 Pa.Sales Tax 

As you will recall in the Practical Woodworking 101 course the Tuition and Lumber & Material Fee were separate.  We are required to do the same thing for the Advanced Joinery Course in regard to tax law issues of services being non-taxable and goods such as lumber being subject to PA Sales Tax.  However in the case of the later (the materials requirement) we have significantly more difficult and challenging issues to overcome.  Your project will require as below: 

A: Leg / Carcase / & Drawer Components: - $130  
4/4 FAS Black Walnut        14 Board Feet
8/4 FAS Black Walnut         5 Board Feet
4/4 FAS Maple or Poplar     3 Board Feet  

B: Top / Lower Shelf / Bread Board Ends / Drawer Face - $70 
5/4 FAS Black Cherry         12 + Board Feet
4/4 FAS Black Cherry         1.5 Board Feet 

TOTAL LUMBER FEE THROUGH OUR  SCHOOL = $200 
(For practical purposes, we have discontinued any allowances for students to supply their own lumber for this Advanced Joinery Course. It is critical that the material be of the highest quality, proper moisture content, and the right grain structure for dovetail joint construction  We base this decision to no longer entertain any allowance for student supplied lumber on three trials of this practice conducted in 2010 that in nearly all cases the material supplied by the student was either not in the right rough dimension, had completely unworkable figure, was improperly dried, and/or had other inhibitive characteristics that had a negative effect on the class.   This not only frustrated the student who bought their own material but this also significantly held up other members in the class that were using our school supplied material for which no such issues occurred.  All should know that we supply the best quality Black Cherry and Black Walnut and do this at zero markup to our students.  Additionally all should know that we even go well beyond the FAS selections in the Practical Woods Course and presort and carefully hand select each and every piece supplied in each student's bundle weeks prior to each course.   We guarantee satisfaction with our high quality material supplied.)
