Woodworking Fundamentals - 1- The Basics
Tuesday evenings Sept 29th to Dec. 15th, 6-9PM
This is the class I wish was available when I first started woodworking. If you are just starting out or looking to 'raise your game,' this class is for you. As an introduction to furniture making, the skill you learn will put you on a path to understanding fine craftsmanship.
Even hobbyists can build heirloom furniture with well-tuned hand tools and a few basic power tools. In this class, you will learn to tune and sharpen your hand tools as well as safety and operation skills for the basic power tools necessary for most fine woodworking projects. The class is designed to get you up and running in the shortest time possible. The final project is the making of a step stool - bench with through dovetails and wedged mortise and tenon.
Class size is limited. This allows for individualized attention to each student. If the class is oversubscribed, we will open a second section the following evening.
No prior experience necessary. However, quality hand tools are required We discuss your tools and any planned purchase with the instructor during the first night of class.
Tuition: $650 plus a materials fee estimated to be $65. The materials fee will be finalized at the end of class. Twelve 4-hour sessions, six students maximum. Lunch on your own. A deposit is required to confirm your reservation. Deposit is refundable until 30 days before the class.
Registration: Please pay the deposit online or by check to register for class.
