Introduction to Woodworking

No woodworking experience required.

Build your own piece of furniture, from start to finish! In this class we will use a simple side table to explore the procedures, techniques, challenges and joys of building your own furniture.  We will discuss design strategies, how to break that drawing down into its parts, the process of milling rough material into finished parts, and treating them nicely so they are ready for a breezy assembly.  We will focus on the core machines of the woodshop (jointer, planer, tablesaw), and practice good habits to establish safe and happy experiences in woodworking.  Some design possibilities will be presented to personalize your project, and students will be encouraged to think creatively. Instruction will rely primarily on demonstrations, discussions, and in-class work time.

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.
