Marc Adams School of Woodworking The Premier Woodworking School in North America
Our 21st Season Has Begun!
We are thrilled to open our 21st season providing you with the finest in hands-on woodworking education. This season promises to bring a stimulating line-up of woodworking classes and workshops, taught by the very best woodworkers the world has to offer, in the very best equipped facilities in North America.
This week, we are pleased to welcome another long-time instructor back to MASW. Stephen Proctor joins us to spend the week discussing "Handskills Every Woodworker Should Know." with another lucky class. Over the course of 5 jam-packed days he will cover a wide range of hand tools and how to use them will enable you to make furniture that would otherwise be impossible to accomplish by power tools alone. Not only will the class learn to sharpen any edge tool, they'll then learn how to properly use the tools by laying out and cutting some joinery. By the end of the week, they will have learned that hand tools, correctly prepared and tuned, actually reduce the need for skill and judgment-the tool will do the job itself! Stephen's class in hand skills is quickly becoming one of the foundational courses taught here at the school. No matter your skill level, it will change the way you work!
Just a typical week here at Marc Adams School of Woodworking!
