Event Details

Introduction to Woodworking is a 4-week series class, designed to teach the basics of woodworking. We will cover shop safety, stock prep, and tool use, focusing on the jointer, planer, and chop saw.

Students will use reclaimed, old-growth lumber from the Rebuilding Exchange warehouse to build a tabletop. This project teaches one of the fundamental projects in woodworking: the glue-up. Your tabletop could also be a bench top, shelving, countertop, work surface, or any panel no larger than 16sf in total. Stack-It brackets from RX Made will be available for purchase for bench or shelf conversions, and different base and support options will be covered.
No prior shop experience is necessary. This class is a prerequisite for Open Shop (see separate listing).
$150 plus $50 materials fee
 ....the reincarnation of one of our most beloved RX workshops ever, Woodworking 101!
