Learn to use hand tools while making a period candle box

About this Event

Participants start with a rough piece of lumber and learn how to use various period hand tools -- saws, chisels, and planes—to transform the wood into a handsome, dovetailed sliding-lid candle box. Basic sharpening and tool-use techniques are also taught. Both beginners and experienced woodworkers who want to hone their craft will benefit from this course. Tools and wood are provided. Students may bring their own hand tools as well.

He has worked professionally as a cabinetmaker since he was 17, and is known for his traditionally styled fine furniture.
