    Expand your carving skills as you carve one or more plaques — perfect for a wall decoration, a sign by the front door, or a gift.

    You can choose your design — perhaps a bird or a scene from nature? — or adapt one of the designs that the instructor will provide.

    This class is open to both beginning carvers and those who already have some carving experience. Students can be as young as 8, although those 12 and under must have an adult with them.

    BARN will supply some carving tools to share, but students are also encouraged to bring their own.

    Basswood carving blanks are $2 each, which you can buy at the class from the instructor.

    Instructor: As a third-generation woodworker, Jeff Iller learned about woodworking tools and knives early on. By high school, he was winning ribbons with his wood carvings at his hometown fair. Around 1996 Jeff found room for a shop and he has carved ever since. He’ll carve most anything, but prefers to innovate with the working tools to carve multiple parts inside one piece of wood and to make physically detailed and accurate carvings of women's faces.

    He was taught early on that he could make anything from wood and he is still trying to prove that statement wrong.

    Get started in your woodturning adventure with this two-session beginner's class, where you’ll learn how to create the basic shapes involved in both spindle and bowl turning.

    In Session 1, you will  turn basic spindle shapes as you learn about safety, technique and how to use the tools with good body mechanics — all important to building a foundation to launch your turning skills. Tools you will use: spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge and parting tool.

    In Session 2, you will learn more about spindle turning as you make a candlestick, goblet, bottle stopper or opener. You will learn about design elements and balance, and how to use a template and/or calipers, and how to turn a secure tenon. Additional tools used will be a negative rake scraper and calipers. All of these accomplishments prepare you for other turning efforts such as bowls and boxes.

    Details:

    • Materials fee: This $10, charge, covers spindle stock and will be collected in addition to the class fee when you register and pay.
    • Clothing: Short-sleeve or tight-cuff tops; closed and comfortable shoes.  No jewelry other than small earrings for women (no rings, bracelets, necklaces). Long hair must be tied back.

    Instructor: Jamie Straw has been turning wood for over three years, making bowls and a variety of spindle projects.  She is Vice President for Education and Training for the local chapter of the American Woodturners Association. Her focus is on helping students, especially new turners, build skills progressively as they design and create fun woodturning projects. She is available to help continuing students during Open Studio for continuing students, and for individual tutoring sessions.

    Craft your own steel-string guitar under the guidance of a master luthier. In this nine-week class, you will go through all the steps, from shaping to assembling to finishing.

    The class, which inaugurates what we hope will be a robust series of luthier programs at BARN, is open to beginners. But if you have little or no hand tool experience, please also sign up for our two-night Hand Tool Basics class, scheduled in the week before the guitar class.

    Materials cost: So that you can build your guitar from the wood you want, students in this class will be responsible for purchasing their own materials in advance of the first session. This cost is in addition to the class fee.

    The easiest way to order materials is to buy through a “one stop shop” luthiers' supply site, such as Allied Lutherie (alliedlutherie.com) or Luthiers Mercantile (www.lmii.com). The latter provides a guitar kit “wizard" that lists what you need and prompts you for various material options. You are also welcome to shop at other retailers.

    • As a guide to what you might need to spend: The total cost came to $366 when the Luthiers Mercantile kit wizard was used to order everything needed to build a guitar with a sitka spruce top, mahogany sides and back, and Gotoh open gear tuners. If you opt for more exotic woods, the price would be higher.
    • Download a complete list of materials at this link. You will also receive the list in an email after you register.
    • If you have questions about wood species, dimensions or other details, feel free to e-mail the instructor at alan.villagemusic@gmail.com.
    • Shared tools and jigs will be provided, although if you have your own hand tools, you are welcome to use them. You will be able to store your parts and project at BARN during the duration of the course.

    This is an 18-session course. The posted schedule includes one extra session so the class can decide whether to meet on Presidents' Day, Feb. 19. Note that two sessions start at 6 pm, rather than 5:30 pm, to accommodate other activities in the woodshop.

    Instructor: Alan Simcoe is a maker of guitars, ukuleles and other stringed instruments. He and his wife, Debby, own Village Music in Lynwood Center. Besides showcasing his custom instruments, the shop offers music lessons and instrument repairs. Simcoe also performs with his Latin jazz band, The Cuban Heels. He was named an Island Treasure in 2009.

    Make two bowls 6 to 9 inches in diameter as you build your wood turning skills and learn some of the special techniques needed for bowl-turning.

    Students will learn how to use a bowl gouge while designing and turning two 6”-9” bowls over two sessions. You will learn how to safely rough-cut the bowl blanks, shape the bowls on the outside, and mount them in a chuck for hollowing-out and shaping the inside. By successfully completing these two sessions, and turning two bowls,  you will have a good understanding of the process and spend enough time turning to be able to turn bowls of this size independently during open studio time in the BARN woodshop.

    In addition to the class hours, you will receive one hour of one-on-one time with the instructor at subsequent open studios , with the times mutually agreed on by you and the instructor. Basic sanding skills will be taught,  although you may need to do the finishing outside of class.

    Details:

    • Open to students who have taken a BARN spindle-turning class or demonstrated equivalent lathe safety and turning skills during a private studio session with instructor. If you have not taken a BARN turning class, please contact Jamie Straw, (360) 551-9233 before registering.
    • While this class is oriented to novice turners, it is also appropriate and useful for experienced turners who have predominantly used scrapers and wish to acquire or improve their gouge skills.
    • The materials fee of $20, for two bowl blanks, is in addition to the class fee and will be collected online as you register and pay.

    Have a well-loved piece of furniture in need of repair or just wish you knew how to bring one back into usable condition? In this hands -on class you’ll learn how to assess a piece of furniture and learn the steps needed to get it back in shape.

     Students can bring a piece of furniture or a part, such as a drawer, that needs help.  If you don’t have a piece but would like to learn repair techniques  work with others on a class supplied project.  The instructor will discuss the repair issues of each piece. Students who have a project too challenging to complete within the three sessions of this class can continue to work on it during open studio time or at a future furniture repair class.

    Details:

    • Open to beginners.
    • A materials fee of $8 is payable to the instructor at the first class. Students will learn then whether they need to purchase additional materials to repair their pieces.
    • Any upholstery must be removed beforehand. If a piece is too big or heavy for one person to carry into the shop, the instructor must approve the project ahead of time.

    Learn basic safety principles of key woodworking power tools with the goal of being checked out to use them during the BARN Woodshop's 30 hours a week of open studio time.

    Everyone who uses the new shop during open studio time will need to be certified to use these tools. The tools are in many cases different than the ones that were in BARN's temporary woodshop in Rolling Bay, so having been certified there is not sufficient. Certification is also a pre-requisite for advanced woodworking classes.

    In this class, you will get hands-on experience with these tools:

    • Table saw
    • 15” planer
    • Jointer
    • Chop saw
    • Band saw (14, 16 & 18 in)
    • Scroll saw
    • Drill press

    Details:

    Build a unique bench or small table from one or more thick slabs of wood in this five-session class. Depending on the wood you choose, you will be able to create a piece that's almost sculptural because of its rich, swirling grain or intriguing color known as spalting. You can preserve a natural edge, if you wish.

    At the first, 1½-hour session, the instructors will discuss suitable wood and design options, including your choice of styles for the wood base. The next three sessions, each 3 hours long, will be devoted to building your project and preparing it for final finish. On the Thursday evenings after the second and third sessions, one of the instructors will be in the shop during open studio time so you can do additional work on your project. At the final session, you will learn about finish options and will go home with enough finish to apply multiple coats. 

    Details:

    • There is a $10 materials fee to cover the finish, epoxy and other shop supplies. This will be collected online when you register and pay. If you pay by check, please add that to the class fee.
    • You will need to supply the wood for your project. You can buy wood from BARN, purchase it elsewhere or bring what you have from your wood stash. The moisture issues associated with use of BARN's Sawstop table saws aren't critical for this project unless your slab is thicker than 2 inches.
    • Beginners are welcome, but please enroll in our three-hour Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 and 2 classes ahead of time. If the classes listed on the calendar are full, please email using this form and we will open a spot for you.
    • You will be able to store your wood in the woodshop between sessions.

    Instructors: Carol Fiedler Kawaguchi and Kristina Avramovic Oldani. Carol is a professional woodworker who specializes in restoration of antique furniture through her business, C-Saw, on Bainbridge Island. She also makes custom furniture, including the slab coffee table in the Commons at BARN. Kristina began working with wood at a young age alongside her carpenter father. She  worked her way through college restoring mid-century furniture and later built slab furniture for Coyote Woodshop on Bainbridge Island.

    Progress to the intermediate level of bowl turning: turning a bowl that has a deeper profile and steeper sides than in the introductory class.

    You will turn one bowl during this class while learning to use three types of bowl gouges, ground with different bevel angles to help you navigate the steeper and more constrained profile of the bowls and to create a deeper, flat bottom without having “catches.” You will develop an understanding of why the different grinds work and when to use which one so that you can turn independently on increasingly sophisticated bowl shapes during open studio or at home on your own lathe. 

    Sanding and finishing of the bowl may need to be done outside of class. Students will be offered one hour each of one-on-one studio time with the instructor as follow-up to this class so that they may consolidate their skills.

    Details:

    • The $10 materials fee will be collected online at time of registration.
    • Open to those who have (a) completed the Introduction to Bowl Turning class and been approved for independent bowl-turning during open studio or (b) demonstrated the necessary lathe safety and bowl-turning skills using a bowl gouge during a private studio session to be arranged with the instructor. Contact the instructor, Jamie Straw, at (360) 551-9233.
    • Students must also have taken BARN’s class on Sharpening Lathe Tools or bring their own bowl gouges.

    Hone your woodworking skills as you build a showpiece liquor cabinet and wine rack that opens up to reveal a serving area.

    Designed for woodworkers who are checked out for using the major tools in the BARN woodshop, this class will walk you through the process of buying wood, milling it to different dimensions, and building the basic cabinet plus components that include the wine rack and a drawer.

    Students will purchase their own wood for this class, so you can be as thrifty or as indulgent as you wish. The initial, two-hour session will go over how much wood to purchase and the design considerations involved in selecting the type or types of wood. Then there will be a two-week break to allow time to buy the wood.

    The 10 hands-on sessions that follow will be three hours each.

    Details:

    • Beginners are welcome, but please enroll in our Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 and 2 classes ahead of time. If the classes listed on the calendar are full, please email using this form and we will open a spot for you.
    • Students are responsible for buying their own wood and hardware. The wood could range from $60 to $70 for pine to $300 or so for walnut, with many options between those amounts. The hardware will cost $50 to $100, unless you choose really pricey drawer pulls. The instructor will bring catalogs to the first meeting so you can order the necessary hardware.
    • To stay on schedule, students may need to do some work between classes, during the woodshop's open studio times.

    Instructors: Mike Gearheard, assisted by Ted Newman. Mike has built several of these cabinets, for his house and as gifts. Ted studied woodworking and assisted in classes at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine. Both are active in BARN's woodworker group and volunteer as safety monitors.

    Get started in your woodturning adventure with this two-session beginner's class, where you’ll learn how to create the basic shapes involved in both spindle and bowl turning.

    In Session 1, you will  turn basic spindle shapes as you learn about safety, technique and how to use the tools with good body mechanics — all important to building a foundation to launch your turning skills. Tools you will use: spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge and parting tool.

    In Session 2, you will learn more about spindle turning as you make a candlestick, goblet, bottle stopper or opener. You will learn about design elements and balance, and how to use a template and/or calipers, and how to turn a secure tenon. Additional tools used will be a negative rake scraper and calipers. All of these accomplishments prepare you for other turning efforts such as bowls and boxes.

    Details:

    • Materials fee: This $10 charge covers spindle stock and will be collected in addition to the class fee when you register and pay.
    • Clothing: Short-sleeve or tight-cuff tops; closed and comfortable shoes.  No jewelry other than small earrings for women (no rings, bracelets, necklaces). Long hair must be tied back.

    Instructor: Jamie Straw has been turning wood for over three years, making bowls and a variety of spindle projects.  She is Vice President for Education and Training for the local chapter of the American Woodturners Association. Her focus is on helping students, especially new turners, build skills progressively as they design and create fun woodturning projects. She is available to help continuing students during Open Studio for continuing students, and for individual tutoring sessions.

    Learn basic safety principles of key woodworking power tools with the goal of being checked out to use them during the BARN Woodshop's 30 hours a week of open studio time.

    Everyone who uses the new shop during open studio time will need to be certified to use these tools. The tools are in many cases different than the ones that were in BARN's temporary woodshop in Rolling Bay, so having been certified there is not sufficient. Certification is also a pre-requisite for advanced woodworking classes.

    In this class, you will get hands-on experience with these tools:

    • Table saw
    • 15” planer
    • Jointer
    • Chop saw
    • Band saw (14, 16 & 18 in)
    • Scroll saw
    • Drill press

    Details:

    Please dress in the same way you will be expected to do when you use the shop for open studio time. That means:
    • Wear close-toe shoes.
    • Bring and wear safety glasses.
    • Wear hearing protectors when warranted; bring your own or use BARN's.
    • Tie back long hair. Avoid loose-fitting clothing; roll up sleeves.

    Using mostly hand tools, build a space-saving Dutch tool chest with plenty of built-in storage for your hand tools.
    This style of tool chest features a slanted lid, which hides a specialized storage area for planes, saws and smaller tools, such as chisels and marking gauges. Perhaps the slanted lid was originally intended to shed rain? Now it serves as a convenient drawing table when you need to sketch joinery details or other features of a woodworking project. Another unique feature is the fall front, which opens up to reveal a cavernous storage area for all of the other tools you may need to build any project.
    Although this style of tool chest can be built out of many different woods, for this class we will use pine. Many traditional Dutch tool chests were made of this wood because it is lightweight for easy portability, yet strong.
    Among the specific skills you will learn:

    • How to use the table saw, the band saw and the miter saw to cut pieces to rough size.
    • How to use hand tools to refine the pieces to final dimensions and to create other details.
    • How to make dovetails in a hybrid way, using both a band saw and hand tools to refine the fit.

    Details:

    • Open to relative beginners but please be checked out on use of the table saw, miter saw and band saw before the class. The best way to do this is by taking our three-hour Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1 class. If you want to sign up for that but classes listed on the calendar are full, please email using this form and we will open a spot for you.
    • A materials fee of $70 to cover the wood and hardware will be collected online when you register and pay. If you pay by check, please add this amount to the class fee.
    • If the four 3-hour class sessions are not enough for you to finish your project, you may need to do additional work during the woodshop's 30 hours a week of open studio time.

    Instructors: Todd Butler, assisted by Dick Culp. Both grew up in woodworking families and have studied hand tool use at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. Todd is a Furnituremaker through his part time business, The Butler Did It and uses hand tools regularly. Dick is on the board of directors at the Port Townsend school and has taught hand tool classes at BARN.

    Your project is finished and now you want to show it off. What to do? You've tried to take a photo, but the image does not capture the beauty of your work.

    In this 3-hour workshop, Jerry Davis will demonstrate how to capture the perfect image of your art with what you have. iPhone, iPad, 35mm, etc. bring what you are comfortable with. He will explain lighting, lighting angles, highlights, avoiding flare, creating simple backgrounds, reflection, contrast, color and white balance, tools and equipment, and special effects. 

    He will share examples of his photos and demo some of his techniques. Specifically, he will teach you how to use your digital camera or smartphone with what you have at home. You will use your camera or smartphone to take photos of your print, glass fiber, jewelry, etc. Bring one or two pieces that you want to photograph,  a notebook and the manual that goes with your camera if available.

    No experience necessary!

    Instructor: Jerry Davis has been a photographer for more than 40 years. Part of that time he was a craftsman as well. After photographing his own work, he started shooting pictures for other artists. Much of their work was in glass or silver. Yes, he started with the hard stuff! He often traveled to the artists' locations so they could have full access to their creations. He constructed many small photo studios in the artists' workshops. Jerry works with available light, natural light, continuous lights, and strobes.

    Make two bowls 6 to 9 inches in diameter as you build your wood turning skills and learn some of the special techniques needed for bowl-turning.

    Students will learn how to use a bowl gouge while designing and turning two 6”-9” bowls over two sessions. You will learn how to safely rough-cut the bowl blanks, shape the bowls on the outside, and mount them in a chuck for hollowing-out and shaping the inside. By successfully completing these two sessions, and turning two bowls,  you will have a good understanding of the process and spend enough time turning to be able to turn bowls of this size independently during open studio time in the BARN woodshop.

    In addition to the class hours, you will receive one hour of one-on-one time with the instructor at subsequent open studios , with the times mutually agreed on by you and the instructor. Basic sanding skills will be taught,  although you may need to do the finishing outside of class.

    Details:

    • Open to students who have taken a BARN spindle-turning class or demonstrated equivalent lathe safety and turning skills during a private studio session with instructor. If you have not taken a BARN turning class, please contact Jamie Straw, (360) 551-9233 before registering.
    • While this class is oriented to novice turners, it is also appropriate and useful for experienced turners who have predominantly used scrapers and wish to acquire or improve their gouge skills.
    • The materials fee of $20, for two bowl blanks, is in addition to the class fee and will be collected online as you register and pay.

    Without creating dust or noise, a nicely tuned hand plane can smooth a board, shape a crisp edge, or add a nice bevel. Need to drill a small hole? Why not use an egg-beater drill and get that hole in a jiffy with no electricity. Do you have a Millers Falls Buck Rogers plane (Google it) that needs some emotional help? Or an old rusted chisel that's splattered with paint but you know it has a heart of gold?

    Bring in your hand tool(s) and tune it up at this clinic. If you don’t have an old tool but want to learn, BARN has tools you can work on. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, you're sure to go home with tips and techniques that you can put to use in many ways.

    Note: We won’t be sharpening hand saws, as this would be a class unto itself (and the noise of filing a saw can be really annoying). But if you do have a saw in need of a tuneup, please bring it. and we'll discuss how to do it.

    BARN will have a supply of scrap lumber to practice on.

    Make a cedar potting bench with a galvanized-steel work surface and shelf as you learn basic woodworking and sheet-metal skills. The bench, approximately 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep, also includes a metal grid where you can hang tools.

    In the woodshop, you will learn to use a chop saw, band saw, table saw and drill. In the metal shop, you'll learn to use a jump shear, a box and pan break, and basic layout hand tools.

    Details:

    • A materials fee of $95 will be collected when you register and pay online. If you pay by check, please add this to the class fee.
    • Open to beginners, but please take our three-hour Woodshop Tool Safety checkout 1 class beforehand. If the classes listed on the calendar are full, please email using this form and we will open a spot for you.
    • All students will meet in the woodshop both mornings, with the class ending as open studio time in the woodshop begins at noon. After a lunch break, half of the class will go to the sheet metal shop to fabricate the metal parts, and the other half of the class can go home or continue to work on the bench in the woodshop during open studio time. The second day, these options will be reversed.
    • Please bring a snack or lunch.
    Instructors: David Grant will lead the woodworking components and Linda Sohlberg will head the metal working.

    In this culminating segment of  BARN's Intro to Woodworking series, you will build a small, Shaker-style table suitable as a lamp stand or night stand that incorporates some of your own design elements.

    You will learn to take a project through all of the steps from initial idea through finished project, including:

    • developing a design, including details that you select, such as width, depth, height and whether to taper the legs.
    • creating a cut list and estimating materials.
    • fabricating parts (using tools you learned in Parts 1 and 2 of the Intro series).
    • assembly and glue-up.
    • finishing.

    If the seven 3-hour class sessions are not enough for you to finish your project, you may need to do additional work during the woodshop's 30 hours a week of open studio time. Open studio time is free for BARN members and $10 for each six-hour session for non-members.

    Details:

    • BARN has a supply of wood that you will be able to purchase to build your table, or you can buy wood on your own. Estimating the cost of different options will be part of the design phase of this class. If you choose poplar, a  relatively inexpensive wood, the price would probably come to around $25.
    • Open to students who have taken Intro to Woodworking Parts 1 and  2 or who have the instructor's permission. If you want to arrange that, please email using this form.

    Have a chair that's wobbly or in need of help? Bring it to this three-session class! 

    The instructor, a furniture-repair expert, will discuss chair structure and evaluate the types of repairs needed for the chairs students bring with them. Then she will help students through the steps needed to correctly repair their chairs. Some chairs may need to be disassembled, scraped free of old glue, and re glued. Others may need new bracing or other first aid. By the end of the class students will learn not only how to fix their own chair but how to approach a variety of treatments on other chair repairs as well.

    Details:

    • Open to beginners.
    • Interested in learning a new skill but don't have an ailing chair at hand? We'll provide one or you can team up with another student to bring a chair new life.
    INSTRUCTOR:  Carol Fiedler Kawaguchi is a professional woodworker who specializes in restoration of antique furniture through her business, C-Saw, on Bainbridge Island.

    Do you have an old hand plane that needs you? Do you want to do woodwork and listen to music at the same time?

    Come join the Hand Tool Interest Group Gathering. No experience necessary. We will talk hand tools and practice using hand tools.

    Bring  in your planes, drills, chisels, and saws and make a little something.

    Chisels and plane blades need sharpening? Learn how and learn how to make dovetail joints.

    Please call Matt at (206) 849-6584 with any questions.
