What separates good from great? Why can one persons work look so much better than another's when making the same piece? In this class students will explore and dissect some of those things that make a difference in craftsmanship. There are rules to follow when working through a project, from design to finish. Choosing to build by hand or machine, or a combination, is key to time and accuracy. Using only hand tools or only machines limits options and can affect the end results. Those options can influence safety, quality and productivity. It all starts with a plan, a cut list and a method of work. Students will make a traditional styled cherry wall clock while developing a routine approach to increase your accuracy and productivity. This project will have opportunities to cut dovetails, mortise & tenons, rabbits and dados by hand as well as by machine. This class would be perfect for those who want to learn some new tricks, develop useable skills, share some knowledge and have a great time.
