Basic Hand-Tool Woodworking

75.00

HANDS-ON CLASS
Second Sunday of the Month, January-December (Youth class on second Saturday)

Learn the elegant art of working wood by hand.  An introduction to classic hand planes, spoke shaves, chisels, and hand saws.  We cover the basics of wood as a material, tool selection, and sharpening.  We welcome total beginners, history buffs and “makers.”  Hand tools are a wonderful and practical way to work wood in a small space like an apartment.  Best of all you get to learn in our beautiful 1800’s woodshop set on an idyllic farm.   A fascinating class of hands-on history. Using simple tools, we will make a classic tool tote with a carved wooden handle.   You will learn to mark lines, hand cut your parts, trim them to square with a hand plane and cut and fit a handle.   With these basic skills you can build anything from a bookcase to a raised bed garden! Materials provided.
