Description

BASIC CARPENTRY AT THE REBUILDING CENTER

Basic Carpentry is built for beginners! All classes focus on a hands-on project using a very simple design and reclaimed wood from The Rebuilding Center. You’ll gain experience with both hand and power tools that you may already have, that are inexpensive to purchase, or that can be borrowed from a neighbor, friend, or tool lending library.

If you choose to pay more than the basic tuition, your generous contribution will support the growth of education programming at The Rebuilding Center, including a scholarship fund. Please consider paying more to pay it forward!

Please enter at the administrative entrance on Mississippi (the brick building just north of the main drop-off area, directly across from Stormbreaker Brewing.)



CLASS DESCRIPTION

Instructor: Valerie Carey

Description:

They’re like customizable milk-crates for grown-ups! Stack big ones for a modular shelf. Group small ones for countertop organization. Add wheels and an upholstered top for a groovy ottoman with storage. Using a very simple design and reclaimed plywood, you’ll make two boxes while gaining skills and confidence to use in future DIY projects. You’ll also leave with pre-cut materials to make three more at home.

This class covers hand and power tools that you may already have, are inexpensive to purchase, or can be borrowed from a neighbor or tool lending library.

Major topics covered:

  • measuring and marking

  • tablesaw, jigsaw, and handsaws

  • air-powered nail guns

  • power drill and screws

  • gluing and clamping

  • sanding with hand and power tools

No previous experience necessary.
