Students will learn to use a number of important shop tools throughout the course of this simple project. We will select reclaimed 1x6 planks and then use the mitre saw, band saw, and spindle sander to cut and shape our material to the appropriate dimensions. The boxes will be joined with a good old fashioned hammer and some nails. Lastly, we will attach a belt as a handle with a hand drill. All materials provided, but feel free to byob (that is: bring your own belt.)This beginner class covers safety and usage of a myriad of hand and power tools.
