Basic Carpentry and Woodworking

Do you have power tools and want to learn to use them safely and effectively? Learn the basics of joinery, jigs, materials, methods, and project design in a woodshop. After selecting your materials, apply everything you’ve learned to safely use hand and power tools in the construction and assemblage of a “toolbox.” A $45 materials fee is due to the instructor on first day of class and includes use of all tools, materials, and lumber for your first project. Emailed directions will be provided a few days before the start of class.

I have always been nervous about using electric saws but this class helped me gain confidence. Peter is a great instructor and I look forward to taking more classes from him.
