Fundamentals of Fine Woodworking with William Ng (9/8/14 – 9/12/14)

The secret to fine woodworking can be found in the pursuit of the fundamentals. With high-tech machines and power tools, these fundamentals can be overshadowed. In this class we will learn the values of design, drawings, mock-ups, sharpening, care and use of hand tools, tuning up a bench plane, layout, measuring tools, wood technology, choosing and preparing lumber, joinery (including hand cut dovetails and the mortise and tenon), safe machine and power tool operation and how to apply a hand-rubbed finish. We will practice these skills by building a beautiful keepsake box. This class is not just for beginners but for all those who want to build a more solid woodworking foundation.
