By the end of this Course your Teen will be able to competently use a variety of power tools and hand tools to actually MAKE something – from design to finished product.
Our fully equipped shop is the scene of creative, skill building work for 5 hours of instruction every day as well for free time. The skills learnt here will last a life time.
Students will learn the complete process of woodworking including:
They will how learn tool set-up and proper techniques for using stationary power equipment (jointer, planer, band saw, etc) and hand tools (squares, chisels, drills, scrapers). Their project will be a small table and/or a chopping board.
Each student is assigned a specific workspace (where the bench, itself, can be used as a tool).
Parents this class is open both girls and boys.
Supervision ratio is high and we stress safety above all else. Students may use power tools only after they have been instructed in their safe and proper use, have spent time observing instructors in their safe and proper use, and can demonstrate to their instructors their ability to use the power tools safely themselves, including the use of protective eye gear and hearing protection.
Appropriate for ages 14 – 17 yrs
