Description of Course:

The woodworkers will be offering an introductory woodworking class for novices to learn the fundamentals of woodworking and more advanced woodworkers that wish to refresh their skills.  The course will introduce basic skills, project design, safety, basic techniques, as well as 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.  Work on each project 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 project proposals can be discussed with the course coordinator and approved if they seem to be suitable for your skill levels. The course includes a workshop orientation that will allow participants to work independently in the workshop by the time the course is completed.

The class will be limited to six participants.  Be aware that work with wood does create dust so you must be able to tolerate wood dust.



The cost of the wood for the selected project is not included in the course fee.  Most projects using pine boards should be less than $30.00 but special woods could cost more.
