Weekend – Intro to Box Making
Weekend – Intro to Boxmaking
Build your skills and store your tools! Chisels present a special challenge; their sharp edges can inflict damage as well as suffer it, so 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 to grow your hand tool and machine skills as well as creating a practical storage box for your chisels that will last you a lifetime.
During the box-making weekend, you’ll learn and practice box-making techniques that include:
- Box design considerations
- Carcass construction using resawn lumber
- Mitres & 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 Beginning Woodwork Weekend class first to get the most learning out of this one.
