Woodworking is about accuracy. Proper alignment and tuning keeps the tool working smoothly and safely. This class will train you to set up and use basic wood working equipment. Our main focus will be on how to correctly use the jointer, planer, table saw, band saw, sander and drill press. With this knowledge, you will achieve cleaner cuts and better surfaces for gluing joints and fine finishes. Each student will practice these techniques through the building of a cutting board and in doing so will learn how to avoid burning wood, inaccurate cuts and unsafe usage of equipment.

This workshop explores the characteristics of wood and the creation of one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. We’ll begin with each student building a table, working from quick sketches to full-scale drawings, refining ideas, and developing an understanding of the set-up and operation of the tool involved. The rest of the workshop will focus on students building furniture unique to their imaginations and learning to break down the construction of complex pieces into single steps. Individual instruction will support each person’s specific areas of interest. All levels.
Scholarship applications are now being accepted, chick here for information.
Regular enrollment will open on May 1.
