Beginning Woodshop runs for 3 sessions of 4 hours and assumes no previous woodworking experience. The goal is to train students in the basic use and safety aspects of the major tools in the woodshop.
Students should plan to attend all three classes.
The first meeting will cover basic safety and project selection. The second and third sessions will be devoted to a project that will reinforce the skills learned on day 1. We will be using many of the tools we practiced on, as well as some layout and marking skills, to build a small project that you will be able to take home and be proud of!
