    * This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

    The table saw is a cornerstone of every shop, and in this introductory class you'll learn the fundamentals of how this powerful and versatile machine works. We'll start with the anatomy of a table saw and how to calibrate the saw to achieve precise cuts every time, and then move on to skills like ripping wood, making miter cuts, and learning to make rabbets and dadoes.

    By the end of this class, you'll have covered most of the cuts you'll ever make with a table saw. You'll have the skills and confidence to change blades, know how to ensure that your cuts are straight and square, and understand how to cut pieces to size accurately and repetitively. The materials fee covers practice wood. This class focuses on learning techniques, not building a class project.

    A common misconception for many woodworkers is that fine woodworking requires complicated techniques or difficult-to-cut joinery.  Three simple joints — dados, rabbets and grooves — are the workhorses in furniture construction.

    In this class, you will learn about the variety of these joints, how to select the appropriate one or a combination for each part of a project and how to set up the table saw to cut each joint safely and accurately. You will learn how to set up a dado blade and how to change the safety cartridge on BARN's SawStop table saws. As you practice, you will build a small, simple cabinet utilizing these joints.

    Virtually all woodworking projects involve measurement and math, for everything from calculating materials needed to ensuring that parts are cut to dimensions that fit together properly. This class, part of BARN's Woodworking Basics series, will walk you through various kinds of measuring tools, from rulers and measuring tapes to French curves and digital calipers.

    You'll get tips about how to lay out angles and curves, how to measure, and how to mark dimensions to ensure accuracy. You will also learn basic math principles that are helpful in woodworking — and ways to cope if math isn't your strong suit.

    Although woodworkers often turn to the table saw to create joinery that uses dados, rabbets and grooves, a router can often do the work just as accurately and much more quickly..

    In this class, you will learn the types of situations when a router — hand-held or mounted upside down in a table — is the best tool. You will learn how to set up to make safe, accurate cuts. To get  hands-on experience during the class, you will build a small, simple cabinet utilizing these joints.

    When you're planning a project, do you choose wood by color? By how hard it is? By its grain pattern? The right answer usually involves several factors, but it really depends on what you want to build.

    This class, which is part of BARN's Woodworking Basics series, will start with a discussion about how wood grows and how that influences the look and performance of lumber. You'll learn about moisture content and wood movement, and how that should influence the wood you choose for various projects. You will also learn why the best option in some cases isn't natural lumber but a panel product such as plywood or even particleboard.

    In fine woodworking, everything starts with the wood. Before you can focus on joinery or fancy details, you need to make a board foursquare, with surfaces that are flat, straight, parallel and square. And then you need to cut the lengths, widths and thicknesses you need, in a way that positions the pieces where the grain direction makes the most sense.

    In this class, you will learn techniques and strategies that will help you custom mill wood to the precise dimensions you need. You’ll learn:

    • Why wood cups, twists and bows, and what to pay attention to when you are selecting wood.
    • How to use the jointer, planer and table saw to get a board to the point where it can be used in furniture making.
    • How to read a board when you are laying out parts, so that you use the wood efficiently and wind up with grain directions that are pleasing to the eye, functional and structurally sound.

    Mortise and tenon joinery are used in many types of furniture construction. The joint finds its way into many furniture pieces for good reason. It offers a lot of mechanical strength and helps keep parts aligned while assembling and gluing. It is a versatile and valuable joint to add to your woodworking skill set.

    By the end of this class, you'll have an excellent understanding of the mortise and tenon joint – how to design with it and the various methods you may use to create it. You'll also have solid hands-on experience in cutting a mortise using the drill press and vertical mortiser and in using the table saw for cutting tenons.

    * This class has prerequisites. Please see below.

    Build a small bookcase, bench, table or other relatively simple project of your choosing as you learn to take a project through all of the steps from initial idea to finished project.

    This class, part of BARN's Woodworking Basics series, is designed for students who have at least beginner-level skills with hand and power tools but want to develop those skills more under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

    The first session, focused on developing a plan and calculating materials, will be taught as a regular class. You will then have almost a week to buy materials. The following five sessions coincide with Open Studio times. You will share use of the shop's tools with other users, but you and up to three other students will have a dedicated instructor to help you through all of the steps. The class is limited to four students to ensure that you get enough help from the instructor.

    You will get the most out of this class if you come to the first session with an idea of what you want to build. Prior to the class, you may want to spend some time perusing project ideas in the books and magazines in the Woodworking Studio's library.

    Details:

    • Open to students 14+ years old who have taken Orientation to the Woodshop, Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 1, and Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2. Besides these required classes, you need to have completed Beginning Woodworking: Hand Tools and Beginning Woodworking: Power Tools, or have the instructor's permission, which you can arrange using this form. Please login to your BARN account and click on "My event registrations" to ensure you will have completed the required prerequisites before this class begins.
    • The materials fee charged when you register covers only shop supplies. You will need to supply your own wood, which you can purchase from BARN or elsewhere. There is a week between the first and second sessions to allow time for this and to get guidance at the first session about the type and amount of wood you need.
    • The six class sessions may not be enough for you to finish your project. Plan on doing additional work during the woodshop's 30 hours a week of Open Studio time, if needed, so that you complete your project by the end of the class. Open studio time is always free for BARN members. Non-members can also use Open Studio to work on class projects without an additional fee.
    • Please click here for BARN's current COVID-19 health & safety protocols. 
    • You must wear safety glasses and closed-toe shoes, tie back long hair, and avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry. We recommend bringing your own safety glasses.
