Shaper Origin: Beginner to Beyond

A wonderful opportunity to learn how to use the Shaper Origin with a great instructor in a comfortably paced class.

Open to new users and those who would like to fortify and grow their skill base.

Taught by furniture maker Michael Burt, you will have a week full of learning, skill-building exercises, and sample work at a school wonderfully suited to lots of interaction and individual instruction.

Class Learning Objectives:

  • Introduction to the machine
  • Discussion of .svg pattern creation and on-tool design
  • Joinery with customization
  • Cutting shapes, cauls
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Inlay
  • Engraving
  • Incorporating Shaper into furniture design

While we complete projects throughout the week, this class is primarily a learning vehicle, and the projects shouldn’t be the only reason to take the course. 

By the end of the week, you should have a good understanding of how to use the Shaper Origin as a tool in your workflow. 

Tools Needed:  You will need to bring your own Shaper Origin and if you have one, a Workstation. LINK to Shaper Origin Home page
