Beginning Woodworking for Women
This class is designed for women who have not had much (or any at all) experience working with wood or tools. Participants will have a chance to explore their creative and practical, problem solving sides, and learn about safety, design, wood, power tools and some hand tools in a supportive learning environment. Machines such as the jointer, planer, table saw, drill press, miter saw, and band saw will be covered as well as jig saws, drills, routers, and sanders. Each participant will design and build a small project of individual choice.
Materials not included.
Hand Finishing to Perfection
The card scraper is an often overlooked, simple, and inexpensive tool which can produce consistent results with no dust and little fuss. Learn when and how to use it, and how to keep it sharp. Each participant will take a black cherry board from square-milled to finish-ready on all six surfaces using handplanes, card scrapers, sandpaper, and abrasive pads. Take the pride in your projects to the next level! Everyone will take home a card scraper to own.
Keep Carving With Sharp Tools
Relief carver Noriko Isogai will teach carvers with dull tools how to sharpen them.
