In this 3-day women's only series, we welcome anyone who identifies as a woman. Cis, trans, non-binary, and queer women of all ages, races, and ethnicities are encouraged to participate. No woodworking experience necessary! The first day we will go through our Intro curriculum, and the next two days will be our Fundamentals class. At the end of this series, you will have the skills to start working on larger projects such as furniture.

In the Intro class, we introduce you to the function and safe use of the most commonly used tools for furniture making. Participants will use the table saw, bandsaw, jointer, planer, and drill press to make a cutting board. Instructors will discuss how to select material, orient grain for a pleasing aesthetic, mill wood, and choose a proper finish. This is an excellent introductory class to learn about the concepts and machines used in woodworking. Saturday, January 15, 2022, 9am-3pm

In the Fundamentals class, you will learn about layout and joinery. Over two days, each student will turn a rough board straight from the lumber yard into a beautiful box with a sliding lid. Develop new skills in layout, how to look at project drawings, and making cut lists. Use new tools like the router table, bandsaw, DADO stack, and brad nailer. We will also talk about the all-important topic of wood movement and how to account for it in your project design. Finally, we'll explore surface preparation and options for finishing. Saturday & Sunday, January 22-23, 9am-4pm

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

Please note, it is critical that students arrive on time. We cannot allow students who have missed instruction to join the class late. This is a serious safety concern, and we appreciate your understanding.
