    This introductory course is designed to give beginner students an overview of the safe use of some of the most common machines and hand tools used in woodworking. 

    We will cover use of the planer, jointer, table saw, miter saw, band-saw, drill press, and additional machines as time allows. The properties of wood and techniques for safe machine operation will be covered thoroughly 

    In this class we will build a three legged stool.  We will explore individual design by shaping and texturing wood surfaces.

    Come to HatchSpace and learn from RISD graduate and studio furniture maker Martin Simpson. The skills taught in this basic class will provide a foundation for more advanced techniques used in some of Martin's studio work. Have some fun while learning something new.

    Some woodworking experience recommended.

    A box joint is made by cutting a set of complementary, interlocking profiles in two pieces of wood, which are then joined (usually) at right angles, usually glued. The glued box joint has a high glued surface area resulting in a strong bond. Box joints are used for corners of boxes or box-like constructions, hence the name.

    In this workshop, participants will learn to layout and create box joints using the table saw and jigs to ensure accurate, repetitive cuts.

    Come for some table saw practice, leave with an elegant little box!  In this  class we will use the table saw to cut dados, rabbets, and some raised panels, and the router table for a little bit of detailing.  You'll learn how to accurately fit small pieces together, and work with some lovely local hardwoods to make a simple box for keepsakes, tea, tiny spice jars, or even recipe cards!  Whether you're brand new to the woodshop, or have experience and want some practice on the table saw, this class will guide you safely through some simple techniques for working with small parts accurately.

    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.

    Some woodworking experience recommended.

    Similar to a box joint, the dovetail joint is made by cutting a set of complementary, interlocking profiles in two pieces of wood.  But the dovetail joint has the added advantage of mechanically interlocking pieces, increasing the strength and stability of the joint.

    In this workshop, participants will learn to accurately layout and create dovetail joints using the hand tools such as chisels and dozuki saws.

    Kumiko is the Japanese technique of assembling wooden pieces to form patterns, without the use of nails or glue. The patterns range from very simple to very intricate.  Kumiko panels can be used decoratively, to make lamps or screens and more.

    In this class, we will learn the basics of Kumiko as we build one or more of the traditional patterns.  We will use hand tools, such as chisels and hand planes, and specialized jigs that make it easy to precisely cut the pieces with the angles and length needed for the pattern. Students will take home a sample pattern.

    We will begin this class by splitting fresh cut hardwood logs into half-round blanks. We will then rough-out our blanks into circles, mount them on the lathe, and, using various gouges and scrapers, learn to remove all the wood that isn’t part of the bowl within. It is an enormously satisfying process; particularly as wet wood is so much fun to turn. Our bowls will be relatively small (approximately soup/cereal bowl sized,) and, as they will be turned “green,” may be prone to some wood movement as they dry.

    Turn A French Rolling Pin
    No woodworking experience required.

    The French rolling pin project offers a great introduction to spindle turning on the lathe. Using relatively few tools and a careful step-by-step approach, we will learn to accurately achieve symmetry of form as we capture the subtle curves of this wonderful kitchen tool. The French rolling pin is often preferred by chefs because it offers a better “feel” for the dough or pastry than heavier straight rolling pins with handles. It is also commonly agreed that dough prepared with a handmade rolling pin simply tastes better.

    Some woodworking experience recommended.

    Make Timothy Clark's High Work Stool in ash and cherry.

    This class will cover many dry-wood chair making techniques and is a starting point for those interested in making Windsor style chairs. We will learn some heavy shaping of the seat with machine and hand tools. We will rough out the legs and stretchers on the lathe and then move to the shaving horse for the final shaping with a hand plane. We will use the drill press to tenon parts and to drill the angled holes for the seat to leg joint.

    This high work stool is designed to be straddled or perched on. When straddled, at least one foot is on the floor for stability.

    Students should come to the class with a very basic understanding of the lathe (using a roughing gouge), drill press, and bandsaw.

    Please Note: The High Work Stool is Tim's proprietary design and therefore is not to be made as part of a students business. A gift for family or yourself is appropriate but if made for sale, a design royalty fee is expected to be paid by the maker to the designer. I encourage students to take these skills and design your own work with what you have learned. Then it will truly be your own.

    Splitting a fresh cut log and carving it into a useful and beautiful spoon is a truly rewarding experience. In this class, students will  explore a variety of methods, both traditional and contemporary, by which to shape a chunk of wood into a spoon. Working  with traditional spoon carving tools (such as a hatchet, carving, knife, hand plane, and gouge,) as well as a few power tools, (such as the band saw and rotary carvers) we will learn to split, mill, rough-out, carve, scrape, and finish, as we reveal the spoon within each log. There is much to be learned from a fresh cut log, both about the material and about ourselves as makers. * Bring a bag lunch.
