Fall 2022 Class Schedule:
Router Workshop : Dec 3
What you will do/learn : A router is an essential and versatile tool in my woodworking. I think it should be in yours too. During this class, you'll get hands-on experience in exploring the wide variety of tasks you can do with a router. We'll also talk about bits, accessories, and other items that make working with routers easy, safe, and accurate.
Let's Build a Bench : Dec 10 + 17
What you will do/learn : This bench project is the ideal opportunity to learn woodworking skills you can apply to other projects. You'll also end up with a great-looking bench that you can use in your entry way, or other room of your house ... not just the garden. During this two-session class, we'll explore basic joinery, using power tools and hand tools. Prior to the class, students will receive a set of plans, a recommended tool list, along with other items to bring.The bench project class concludes with making the top and assembling all the parts. We'll discuss finish options, creating wood plugs, using fasteners, and getting smooth surfaces
