Description

Tools and Woodworking: the Basic Basics

with Bill Thomas

In this introduction to woodworking and tools class we’ll begin with the most basic skills and concepts and build on that foundation. If you are intimidated by tools and the idea of working with your hands don’t worry, because that’s the first thing we’ll cover. You can do this!

We’ll meet for two 4-hour sessions with a goal of understanding and then using common hand tools needed for home repair and beginning woodworking projects. We will explore what tools to buy and which ones to avoid. We will use simple power tools, drills and fasteners. Learn how to sharpen tools. Discuss which wood is appropriate for your repairs and projects, as well as which glue to have on hand. In the process we’ll practice these new skills as each student builds a basic toolbox to help them organize the tools they have or will be buying.

The pace in the class will be relaxed and catered to the student’s needs and questions. Time will be allowed to explore ideas and particular repair and woodworking issues that you might be dealing with.

If there is interest, we can build on what we learn in this class with a series of more advanced classes where we design and then build more projects.

We meet from 9am-1pm on March 17 and 18, 2018
