Get a broad understanding of navigating a well-equipped wood shop while learning the safety basics through practice. In this course, makers will begin with un-milled lumber and process it through various wood shop machines to get hands-on experience with multiple tools in the shop, resulting in a mini hat rack to take home with them!
What you’ll learn:
- Chop sawing longer lumber to size
- Face jointing to create a reference face
- Edge jointing to square edge #1
- Planing to a specific thickness using reference face and proper wood orientation
- Rip and crosscut table saw instruction to achieve designation size
- Drill press instruction to achieve both through and depth-designated bores
- Band saw detailing
- Router table detailing
Workshop attendees will need to be properly outfitted to attend this course. This includes: closed-toed shoes, long pants preferred, and a way to secure long hair.
