An Intro and More to The Shaper Origin

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

Open to new users, as well as 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 and skill-building exercises and sample work.  The school is wonderfully suited to lots of interaction and individual instruction.

This is a hands-on Shaper class, some of the things you will learn about include how to:

  • 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 there will be a project(s) for the class, please think of it as a vehicle of learning and not necessarily the primary reason for taking the class.

There will be ample opportunities to learn through discussions and demos as well as lots of hands-on time with Shaper with individual instruction.

By the end of the course, students should have a good understanding of how to use Shaper Origin as a tool in their workflow.

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