We are pleased to announce our first class offering, "Intro to Woodworking - Box Class" as the initial step in our skill building path to furniture making.
Once you've completed this prerequisite class, you can move on to more complex projects and classes.
Learn fundamentals as you work a given plan through to completion. This beginners' class covers a lot of basics: safety, shop etiquette, properties of wood, how to work from a plan, how to cut and mill stock, and some simple machine joinery. We will focus on four essential power tools: the chopsaw, jointer, planer and the table saw and we will establish a foundation for deeper work. Students are encouraged to provide their own safety protection (eye, ear & respiratory) although we will have some for common usage. There are no mandatory tools for this intro class, although interested students can find a specially priced "Hatch Starter Tool Kit" at Brown & Roberts - https://hatchspace.org/news/7008223
