Learn the essentials of woodworking from a master craftsman. The class will focus on the teaching you the tools and techniques needed to create with wood - either by hand or using our extensive machine woodworking shop. This class is appropriate for beginner or novice woodworkers.
Each week will feature instruction on important skills - tool sharpening and maintenance, choosing the right wood, flattening boards, joinery, making your own tools and accessories, etc.
It will also include time for project work - starting with small guided projects such as making a toolbox. Over the last four sessions of the class, students will be able to choose their own projects to work on, and will receive one-on-one instruction on the unique elements of their project.About the instructor:
