Our club is offering some exciting woodworking classes this fall! If you have cabin fever from the COVID pandemic, this might be an opportunity to get out of the house.
Our classes will be small with only a few folks, and everyone will be required to wear a mask so your COVID exposure will be minimal.
Don't miss out on this excellent opportunity to learn from Master Woodworker, Phil Huber, who is also the host of the TV Show, WoodSmith Shop. This is a great opportunity to get some quality woodworking training from an expert right here in Des Moines.
Classes are generally for beginner (some intermediate) woodworkers and cover a range of topics. You can sign up for $35 for each class.
Phil Huber is the host of the Woodsmith Shop TV show and the multimedia editor for Woodsmith magazine. He's been woodworking for nearly 30 years. He enjoys building for friends and family including wall cabinets, tables, boxes, carved bowls and spoons. He works in a small shop at the back of his garage and loves to put old tools back into use.
Fall 2021 Class Schedule:
Build an Adjustable Height Stool
What you will do/learn : Bar stool, shop stool, or just an extra seat at the table, you can build an adjustable height stool that uses wood threads you made yourself. In this three session class with Phil Huber, we'll explore creating curved legs, circles, and other shapes. The stool goes together with easy to cut joinery. You'll also learn how to cut threads in wood. A materials list will be provided after you sign up.
Arts & Crafts Style Clock
What you will do/learn : An heirloom timepiece doesn't have to take up a lot of space. This stylish clock catches your attention on a mantle, shelf, or table top. Despite its small size, you'll learn about creating solid joinery and paying attention to fine details. The centerpiece of the clock is a handcrafted tile from Motawi Tileworks (purchased prior to class) — or other item of your choosing. A materials list and tool list will be provided after you sign up.
