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 your own 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.

Logical presentation of steps needed to create and finish our first project. Was detailed so we didn't have to guess or try to intuit steps. Non-judgmental acceptance of mistakes as part of the learning process and taught problem solving skills.
