College Woodwork's latest furniture series "Clarington"
College Woodwork is a century-old furniture manufacturer located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada and is a subsidiary of Kingsway College. College Woodwork was originally a woodworking class for students attending Lornedale Academy and today provides employment for students of Kingsway College.
College Woodwork began in the early 1900s as a woodworking class for students attending Lornedale Academy. For both philosophical and economic reasons, work was viewed as an essential component of education. By 1920, the woodworking class had grown into a business producing small household items—trellises, playpens, potty chairs, ladders and ironing boards. Furniture was a natural extension of the product line, and by the early 1960s, production focused on simple furniture.
