Fundamentals of Woodworking


This class is designed for beginning woodworkers or those who have been away from their hobby for some time. Students will have a chance to learn about different types of joints using both hand and power tools as they make their own take-home project. The course also covers subjects such as wood technology, selecting and purchasing lumber, sharpening techniques and finishing.

All tools and materials provided. Paper and Pencil recommended for note taking. Please wear closed toed shoes.

“The class was great. The project was appropriate for someone with little hands-on experience. Les is excellent at explaining each step in the construction process as well as the appropriate safety precautions and best techniques. The experience was what I hoped for, and even better than billed. Thanks for making educational opportunities available to rookies like me.”

“Adrian was a great instructor. Very patient with everyone in the class, clear in his instruction, and clearly an expert in his craft. I was perhaps most impressed with how he encouraged us all to be creative with our projects.”
