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.

Introduction to the machine
Discussion of .svg pattern creation and on-tool design
Joinery with customization
Cutting shapes, cauls
Jigs and fixtures
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.
