    This beginning woodworking class offers an in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of building furniture. Through the creation of a Side Table, students will be guided through every aspect of project building, from initial design to final finish. We will cover the safe and thoughtful use of all the power tools in the HatchSpace machine room, with particular attention paid to the milling process (jointer, planer, table saw,) as well as a wide range of hand tools and techniques. Numerous design possibilities will be presented, and students will be encouraged to think creatively. Instruction will rely primarily on demonstrations, class discussions, in-class work time, and will even include a field trip to a local lumber yard.

    Cost of materials not included.

    Instructor: Blake Johnson

    Blake started his woodworking career in a teaching environment, at art college, and hasn’t let that learning/teaching thing go ever since.  He has built scribed log playgrounds, museum casework and exhibits, furniture, and renovated houses.  He appreciates making for himself, and loved ones, objects that evoke joy and character for years to come. He loves the process of making things, the mental machinations, the problem-solving, and the many discoveries that come while working with a natural material. Each project becomes a process of getting to know the work, the wood, and in some ways, a bit of himself. This sense of empowerment and responsibility to a personal environment is something he hopes to spread in every place where he works. Some photos of his work can be seen at www.heartsparkarts.com and on Instagram at @runeshai.

    Beginning Lathe Techniques: Bowls, Platters

    This class is an introduction to face-turning techniques on the lathe. Together we look at the fundamental tools and techniques used to create a wide-variety of simple forms which can be used as the basis of more complex creations. The hands-on, direct learning approach includes safety, setup, design considerations, and tool selection. This is an excellent opportunity to take the mystery out of turning and serves as a springboard to make your creations come to life. 

    Tools and materials are provided.

    No previous lathe experience is required.

    No Woodworking Experience Required

    This class serves as the perfect introduction to woodworking’s most versatile joints: dovetails and mortise-and-tenon.  It also serves as a great way to practice handtool technique.  Over the course of four sessions, students will turn a single five-foot board into a handsome, functional bench.  We’ll start with a brief discussion of design principles and layout practices and then get to the heart of the matter: cutting dovetails.  Students will cut a few sets of dovetails in scrap wood before taking the saw to their final project. The bench’s stretcher, joined to the legs with wedged through tenons, provides another opportunity for the careful paring of saw and chisel.  If time allows, we’ll finish-plane and sand the benches, but we won’t apply finish to them in class.
