    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

    Violin Making: The Practice of a Tradition of Woodworking
    Douglas Cox

    Where: HatchSpace Gallery. 35 Frost St, next to the new Mocha Joe’s roaster and offices. 
    Admission $10, $5 for BMAC, BMC and HatchSpace Members

    The violin is a highly evolved use of wood to achieve aesthetic and acoustic goals. The process of making has changed little from 17th century Italy when the design on the violin solidified.

    Douglas Cox, a German trained violin maker with 52 years experience, will explain and explore the process from a wood workers perspective, demonstrating materials, tools, and techniques. While much of the process is specific to violin making and can only be inspirational or thought provoking for most wood workers, the bulk of the work is refined woodworking, a slight variant on what all woodworkers do every day.

    The talk will include lots of parts and tools to handle, and demonstrations of many of the techniques Doug thinks will be of interest, including joining, carving, bending, and gluing.

    Refreshments will be served along with toe tapping music from one of Doug’s violins. Other Doug Cox instruments will be on display in the gallery.
