This is an IN-PERSON class.
This two (2) weekend class introduces students to our bench room in the woodshop and the fundamentals of cutting woodworking joints by hand. In this class students will learn three basic joints: a dovetail joint, a lap joint, and a mortise and tenon joint.
The class includes significant training with our hand tools, with a focus on best practices and how the tools work for you. Students will use hand saws, hand planes, chisels, and a variety of measuring and marking tools. This is a small class with six students total, allowing for in-depth instructor attention.
This class meets Saturdays & Sundays for 2 consecutive weekends.
