Basic Hand-Tool Woodworking

75.00

HANDS-ON CLASS
First Saturday of each month, January-December

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.
