WOOD SUMMER SESSION 7
August 13–18, 2023
Hand Tools First
The goal of this workshop will be to strike a balance between the use of machines and hand tools while creating aesthetically pleasing small wall cabinets. The practice of using hand tools—planes, dovetail saws, chisels, marking gauges, etc.—brings a certain joy to woodworking as you master the use and care of these tools. We’ll pay special attention to hand-cut dovetails, mortise and tenon joints, sharpening, and the adjustment and use of hand planes. All levels.
