Total Beginner II
Maximum Class Size: Approximately 12
Total Beginner Series of Woodworking Workshops
This is a series of 3 workshop courses designed to carefully introduce the total beginner to woodworking by presenting material around a project-based curriculum.
These three courses concentrate on woodworking skills which build upon earlier skills covered, leading to the successful completion of a bookcase (Total Beginner 1), a solid wood coffee table (Total Beginner 2) and a metropolitan console with bent lamination legs and a drawer (Total Beginner 3). Important and interesting material related to woodworking in general is thoroughly covered. We feel that the planning, learning, practice, and hard work that goes into the construction of a furniture piece can be critical to developing and retaining both good habits and learning more advanced techniques.
Total Beginner II- Coffee Table
This 6-session workshop builds upon material presented in Total Beginner I by covering advanced operations of basic woodworking machinery, as well as the use of specialty jigs, shop fixtures and hand tools.
In this workshop, students will learn how to: mill wood, glue up solid wood panels, and execute perfect mortise-and-tenon joinery. Special class sessions will be devoted to: wood theory, gluing and clamping techniques, special fasteners, and refining shapes by using hand tools and abrasives.
Course fee (including materials fee) $575
