Description of Course:
The course includes a workshop orientation that will allow participants to work independently in the workshop when the course is finished. The class will be limited to six participants. Be aware that woodwork does create dust so you must be able to tolerate wood dust.
The course will introduce basic skills, project design, safety, techniques and planning the successive steps for completing your project and achieving your project goals. The class will be organized around individual projects selected by each student who will be mentored and supervised by the instructors. Potential projects on the list include: bird houses for chickadees or swallows, cutting boards, small benches, small tables, plant stands, planters, turned bowls and wooden toys. Other projects can be discussed with the course coordinator and approved if they are suitable for your skill levels.
Most projects using pine boards should be less than $30 but special woods could cost more.
