Learn to use woodworking tools safely, efficiently and with precision while you build one or more projects of your own design. The pictures show just a few of the possibilities, which also might range from a cutting board or a cell phone amplifier to a shoe organizer or a jewelry holder. Or you could make a toy to give to a child. If you don't have an idea for your project, don't worry: We'll provide ideas to get your creative juices going.
This class will focus on hand tools and a couple of portable power tools, such as a cordless drill and a jigsaw. You will learn how to "read" a board to choose the best places to cut specific parts, how to use measuring and marking tools, how to choose and use the appropriate saw to cut out parts, how to smooth the parts, how to assemble pieces, and more. This isn't an "assemble-a-kit" class. You will be cutting, planning, gluing and finishing — and, we hope, getting excited about woodworking.
Projects are subject to the instructor's approval.
