If you’ve never really had the opportunity to gain experience in the woodshop before, the prospect of working with power tools can be a bit daunting. They’re loud, they’re powerful and it’s no secret they can be dangerous. However, the chop saw, the planer, the table saw, the jointer and the rest are all just tools: once you know what you’re doing and gain some practice and confidence, they make life better, easier and open up new worlds. Join wood artist Cecillia Schiller in a hands-on exploration of woodworking basics: the how, when and why of safe and effective power tool operation. Using the jointer, planer, table saw and band saw, you will learn step by step how to take a rough sawn piece of lumber and make an attractive cutting board. Then, you’ll gain additional practice, skills, and confidence by making a beautiful keepsake box. By request, this class is open to women only.
