This class covers the fundamentals of woodworking, focusing on the properties of wood, wood selection, project planning, joinery, and finishes. Students can expect to leave class with a completed piece (past projects include a toolbox and a side table built out of solid wood). No experience is necessary, but students must be comfortable learning to use hand and machine tools, including a table saw, band saw, jointer, planer, and router, with instruction on safety and proper usage.
All supplies provided! Please wear appropriate clothes for an art studio (dress for mess!). Close-toed shoes are required for wood, metal, stone, or other sculpture classes. Eye and ear protection is provided, but some students prefer to bring their own which you are welcome to do.
