                      Make a Bandsaw Box


    This class will focus exclusively on the bandsaw, one of the most versatile machines in the wood shop. Each student will make a lidded box using only this machine and a few hand tools. We will learn how to use the bandsaw for straight and curved cutting. We will learn to turn tapered, curved forms in functional and beautiful boxes.

    Saturday, November 23, 2019 9 AM- 12 PM-$45

    Please join us for a rare opportunity to delve inside the creative mind of Michael Coffey, a living master of the American Studio Craft Movement. Michael will give a slide presentation in the morning, followed by an in-depth demonstration of his design process and technical methods for achieving furniture designs that challenge gravity and symmetry with sweeping, curved forms.

    Turning for Daily Life

    Part One of a Two Part Series


    My favorite part of woodworking is its application to my direct lived experience.  As we learn to build and sculpt, we learn to create and curate the worlds we live in.  In this class, you’ll learn how to fashion a handle for something that you can use every day.  You’ll learn basic lathe functions and techniques, and get some practice shaping wood on the machine that can be transferred later to turning bowls and spindles.  Bring something small with a handle that’s not quite meeting your needs, and together we’ll all get a better handle on things. 3 hours. Open to any adult over 18. No experience necessary. Materials included.

    Instructor: Blake Johnson

    From all-hand-tool timberframing in rural Poland, to machining sheets of sparkly pink plexiglass for a set of fashion show stages, I am always keen to learn and try something new.  I've built scribed log playgrounds, museum casework and exhibits, furniture, and renovated houses.  I collect skills and techniques to inform my sense of how to build a world I'd like to live in.  Creating objects is as much a process of making as using; something leaving the workshop enters my life in a new way, living and changing with me over time.  This sense of empowerment and responsibility to our own environment is something I hope to spread in every place that I can teach.  My portfolio can be seen at www.heartsparkarts.com and I am on Instagram as @runeshai.

    !&$#@* Sharp

    Honing Hand Tools In the Japanese Fashion

    When you want your joints and finished surfaces to come out just right, there’s no substitute for a perfectly sharp edge.  In this class, you’ll learn how to create and maintain one on chisels and plane irons. We’ll start with a bit of theory, and introduce the basic tool kit, but most of the time will be devoted to turning neglected edges into gleaming blades.  You are welcome to bring your own tools and waterstones, but the HatchSpace will also have on hand everything you need for the class.

    Turning for the Holidays

    Part Two of a Two Part Series

    If you'd like to keep up the turning spirit, why not welcome the new year with a simple gift that you made yourself.  We’ll use the lathe to create one or two small things like a handle for a tool, or a pizza cutter, or a bottle stopper! No experience necessary, though completion of Turning for Daily Life is required. Materials included.
