Fundamentals of Woodworking is the launching point into our sequential comprehensive woodworking courses. This class covers the basic techniques all woodworkers should know, the tools needed to get started and two fun projects to apply those skills. Students will construct a Japanese toolbox and a set of Krenov Style Sawhorses while learning about woodworking safety, material knowledge, wood grain and movement, cut types, wood/part selection, woodworking machines, hand tools, milling process, basic joinery, basic shaping, and furniture construction best practices.
Materials and material cost is included in this class and the lumber will be ready and waiting for each student. Students will walk away with their very own toolbox and set of sawhorses.
