No woodworking experience required. 

Come dive into the basics of how a table saw works: blades, squaring, safety, troubleshooting, and learn what you can do with it: ripping, crosscutting, joinery. Explore advanced operations of joinery: dados, rabbets, miters, and how they can form the aesthetic and function of your project. This is an interactive class where everyone will work on the table saw with guidance and feedback. Review what you know already, learn more, or start learning as a beginner. 

Thursday, July 7  |  6pm - 9pm

Cost:  $45 members; $54 supporters; $60 non-members

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 and on Instagram at @runeshai.
