Weekend – Intro to Box Making
Build your skills and store your tools! Chisels present a particular challenge; their sharp edges can inflict damage. If your chisels are rattling around in a drawer or still in the flimsy original packaging, consider making a box to protect and organize them for easy retrieval.
This class will help you grow your hand tool and machine skills and create a practical storage box for your chisels that will last you a lifetime.
During the weekend box making class, you’ll learn and practice techniques that include:
Box design considerations
Carcass construction using resawn lumber
Mitres and splined mitre joints
Setting hinges and hardware
The goal is to complete your pieces, aside from finishing. An oil wax finish is available.
No experience is required for this class, although we highly recommend that you take the Weekend Beginning Woodwork class first to get the most learning out of this one.
