Woodshop Intro for Women

Course Overview

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. 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.

Registration in the March 2019 session of this class includes participation in the Carvers Conference day Friday, March 8, as part of Wood Week, which features demonstrations, skill shares and open shop. More information will be provided upon registration. Please plan to participate!
