Continuing Education Course
Designed to introduce students to working with wood, this course will begin with an overview of the general properties of various woods and give a brief history of woodworking. Demonstrations will be given in hand joinery (dovetails), turning with a lathe and hand-tool applications. In addition, techniques in clamping, gluing, sanding and finishing will be addressed. Projects will include creating a lathe-turned object and a small piece of furniture (such as a stool or table). No prior experience is necessary.
NOTE: The studio fee includes safety equipment, hand tools, drill bits, saw blades, abrasives, compressed air, lubricants, wood glue and access to the wood workshop outside of class time, based on facility availability. All other materials must be purchased by the student.
