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.

For beginners with very few or no tools, don’t worry, we have tools for you to use and get comfortable with. These tools are ones that we personally use everyday and recommend, however, we’ll also give you our opinions on other brands and makes. At the end of the class, you’ll be well informed when the time comes to purchase your own tools.

We will be dedicating some time for sharpening and tuning up hand tools, so bring any tools you want to sharpen.

 

SORRY, THIS CLASS IS FULL BUT YOU CAN PUT YOURSELF ON THE WAITING LIST IN CASE THERE ARE ANY CANCELLATIONS. THANKS

  1. I’m confused with the upcoming classes…. the schedule indicates that space is available for both of the Feb classes but the details page says the classes are both full.

    Can you clarify if there is space in either of the Feb classes?

  2. How does this schedule work? The class is strictly from 9am to 5pm everyday from 2/14/22 to 2/19/22? Do you offer anything on weekends or for individuals that work?

    1. I will be adding a few weekend classes like inlay, finishing plane making. Most of my students are from out of town, so 5-8 days straight works best for them. You might want to look into a community college. Not sure where you live but Cerritos College has a pretty good program.
