Fundamentals of Woodworking builds on the skills that students learn in Intro to Woodworking. Throughout the process of making a wooden box, participants will hone their milling techniques while developing new skills in layout, cutting to size, and basic box joinery. We will discuss lumber selection and grain graphics, and students will choose to work with maple or cherry. Each participant will begin with a rough board and learn how to rough cut the lumber before completing milling and joinery. Finally, we'll explore surface preparation and options for finishing. 

All tools and materials are included. Class is limited to eight students.


This workshop requires Intro to Woodworking as a prerequisite. If you think you already have the knowledge and experience you need for this class, please email for an exemption. 


Each eight student class has two experienced instructors. We make sure that each class has at least one woman instructor.
