Basic Woodworking Skills Tutorial

Course Overview

Afraid of undertaking that woodworking project that’s been on your mind? Spend some time with a true craftsman, learn to use and sharpen some basic hand tools, and explore the fundamental elements that go into any project. Small class size encourages dialogue about the variety of approaches for getting from the start to the finish. Each student will do the hands-on work necessary to complete a beautifully designed bookend that incorporates four kinds of wood, a dovetail, a mortise and tenon, and a screw joint. Peter’s goal is to give you the confidence and resources to start learning about woodworking as well as the basics to begin that next project.
