Event description

Description

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!

We’ll meet for two sessions with Saturday being a bit longer than Sunday. We’ll focus on understanding and using the common hand tools needed for home repair and basic woodworking projects. We will explore what tools to buy and which ones to avoid. We’ll use simple power tools, drills and fasteners. The class will also learn to sharpen basic edge tools and discuss 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.

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. 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.
