Jan 15, 2018 - Jan 19, 2018 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Cost: $750

A combination class that offers an informative, stress-free point of entry into the life-long craft of woodworking.

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.

Through a series of lectures and demonstrations, you will learn and practice with hand tools: tuning, sharpening, saws, chisels, hand planes,
dovetails, mortise and tenons, and joints.  You will also learn about bandsaws and some smaller power tools.

What You’ll Do:
You’ll hone your skills by safely using hand tools and properly developing and practicing your hand tool and joinery techniques. You’ll work on
