Joinery I: Woodworking with Hand Tools

joinery1

1 day class

In this workshop we will demystify the art of hand-tool woodworking through practical demonstrations and hands-on instruction. We will teach you a simplified process of edge-tool sharpening as you learn how to get a razor-sharp edge on your woodworking tools, including chisels, hand planes and hand saws. You will also learn how to hand cut many of the traditional joints, including a dado, a dovetail and a mortise-and-tenon joint, through hands-on exercises. These three joints are the primary joints traditionally used in furniture construction. After completing this course you will leave with the skills and confidence to go home and start working wood by hand.

This class is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In order to secure your place in a class, we must receive your full registration fee for any class costing less than $1,000.00.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.
