Young people love to engage their brains and work with their hands, and this class allows them to do just that. Students will use machines and hand tools to create a stool using wedged mortise & tenon joinery. They’ll use a tenon cutter and bandsaw to cut joinery, the drill press and a jig to drill mortises for the legs, and rasps and files to shape the legs. We’ll wrap-up the day with sanding and finishing.
This workshop is appropriate for ages 10-17 years. We'll break into two, age-specific groups to work. Class is limited to ten students.
All materials and supplies are included.
Please bring a bagged lunch.
