Everyday Slöjd- A Firewood Carrier made from Firewood

Course Overview

Make a sweet little firewood/kindling carrier from three pieces of firewood, straight from the woodpile. We will cut, split and shape using hand tools, and refine our skills with a carving knife for the joints and smaller details. A fourth piece of wood will be split up to load the carrier and it will be all set to bring to your wood stove or campfire, or to serve as a unique and fantastic gift for someone special.

This is a woodworking class utilizing hand tools only. The class will utilize familiar tools such as the saw, brace and drill; students will also be introduced to the froe, hatchet, and drawknife, tools rarely found in most modern wood shops.

Low-tech, resourceful, and fun… this is a great project for developing a new skillset with quiet and portable hand tools.
