MAKE A WOODEN STOOL
Professional woodworking with Jorge Centurión
After Work hours from 6pm to 9pm
Jorge Centurión, woodworker and designer specialized in the manufacture of furniture and objects, presents his new course of manufacturing with the use of jigs.
Jigs are an essential part of woodworking and consists of a series of accessories that convert tools and machinery into specialized tools for specific tasks, facilitating our work throughout the making process, from precise and repeated marking, to the machining of complex parts and the assembly.
Whether series-producing or making one-of-a-kind objects, Jigs are necessary to get the most out of our machines and take our manufacturing methodology to the next level.

"Curious, obsessive, meticulous and dedicated to the manufacture of furniture and objects made with my hands. That's me.
As a child I made my own toys, I inherited skills from my plumber father, and acquired others with practice and work.
I spent 18 years working with vinyl labels and most of that time I was the unseen working hands but my dedication was always recognized by seeing my work. Later, I outgrew that line of work and decided to dedicate myself completely to my passion. So I trained in woodworking and cabinetmaking, but I do things the way I like to, that is, I take the techniques that I learned beyond the traditional.
Now I make products where I can take care of every detail. And I feel the excitement of that child making his toys, now for others, but always without stopping to grow and learn ... "
