Do you have a pile of wood and don’t know what to do next? Learn how to manifest your vision into a viable shop plan through a step by step planning and drawing process. Gail Grycel will take the class through aesthetic and functional considerations, guiding participants through three dimensional drawings, joinery and detail options, and a cut list for use in the wood shop. Bring percolating ideas to explore, some graph paper, a pencil, a straight edge or ruler, and tape measure.
Come dive into the basics of how it works: blades, squaring, calibration, safety, troubleshooting. Learn what you can do with it: ripping, crosscutting, joinery. Explore advanced operations of joinery: dados, rabetts, miters and how they can form the aesthetic and function of your project.
This class will focus exclusively on the bandsaw, one of the most versatile machines in the wood shop. Each student will make a lidded box using only this machine and few hand tools. We will learn how to use the bandsaw for straight and curved cutting. We will learn to turn tapered, curved forms in functional and beautiful boxes.
