Basic Woodworking with Marc Adams April 11-15, 2022

This class will advance your woodworking skills by leaps and bounds and is perfect for beginners or a husband and wife who want to spend a week together building new woodworking skills. Students begin the week by learning tool safety and set up and proper techniques for using both stationary power equipment and hand tools. Design, wood movement, joinery techniques and veneer applications are presented next. Each student will have the opportunity to practice hand skills such as sharpening, scraping, cutting dovetails, and cutting and laying up veneer patterns called parquetry. On Wednesday, students begin making a sculpted nightstand that will put into practice the use of stationary power tools and hand tools. Students are required to use hand shaping techniques to give the nightstand a personality all its own. By Thursday, students begin assembling the nightstand and start preparing it for finishing. The goal is to complete the table (except finishing) by Friday afternoon. By the end of the week students will be on their way to a better understanding of fine craftsmanship.
