Handtools & Joinery – Unplugged Woodworking

Jul 13, 2019 - Jul 13, 2019 | 8:30 am - 5:00 pm


The Unplugged Workshop provides furniture making students with a hands-on workshop experience to improve joinery and hand skills. This course is ideal for understanding the art and science of using hand tools to hand cut joinery and appreciating the much quieter and compact alternative to power tools.

If you don’t have a huge shop or a ton of tools this stress free class will show you how with a few essential tools.  You will learn how to sharpen and work efficiently and easily with hand planes, chisels, and a small bandsaw. Each piece of equipment is explained and you will practice the techniques for keeping everything sharp and well-maintained. Using a combination of handtools, and just one or two small power tools you will be resawing lumber and planing it flat, to cutting joins and creating furniture.

Level:
