Hand-cut joinery, shaping, and cutting out space for hardware all require handling a chisel. Become a chisel wizard with the ultimate cutting exercise: the Gottshall block! The challenge of the Gottshall block is to recreate the given image using only hand tools. Under the skillful guidance of Martin Hernandez, you will complete all layout using a pencil and combination square, and all cutting with only a chisel and a mallet.

All materials and supplies are included. Class size is limited to 10 students.

This class is 4 hours long and does not include a lunch break, but students are welcome to bring snacks.
