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 8 and up. Class is limited to two students and total instruction time is 4 hours.
Material cost is $50 per student and all tools are included.
Shortly after purchasing the class, you'll receive an email from us about scheduling.
Each private class will be paired with one of our talented and experienced instructors.
