In this introduction to tools and woodworking we’ll begin with the most basic skills and concepts, and then build on that foundation. If you’re intimidated by tools and the idea of working with your hands, don’t worry -- you can do this! The pace in the class will be relaxed and catered to the students’ needs and questions, including time to explore ideas and particular repair and woodworking issues.

We’ll focus on understanding and using the common hand tools needed for home repair and basic woodworking projects, and discuss what tools to buy and which ones to avoid. The class will also learn to sharpen basic edge tools and evaluate which wood is appropriate for your repairs and projects. We’ll also talk about glue and which one to have on hand. In the process of covering all this 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.
