Wood Summer Session 1
May 29–June 3
Fundamentals of Woodworking
This intensive workshop will start with a journey through the life cycle of lumber as we discuss the origin of various wood species and selecting proper pieces for a project. We’ll cover the safe use of hand and power tools, how to properly measure, milling techniques, joinery methods, understanding wood grain, and finishing. Expect to complete two or three of the following projects: cutting board, splined mitered box, small table. This workshop will be hands-on fun that will give you the confidence you need to pick up a tool and make something amazing! Beginning level.
