Joinery with the Pantorouter with Mac Sheldon August 13 - 14, 2022

about this workshop

The PantoRouter is a template-guided joinery machine that makes mortise and tenon, box joints and dovetails fast, easy, accurate, repeatable and fun! In this class Mac will teach traditional joinery then move on to advanced operations using specialized jigs and techniques to make even complex joinery approachable. This class is for beginner to advanced PantoRouter users. It’s fast-paced, hands-on and a whole lot of fun! Students will learn how to set up and cut straight, angled and compound-angled mortise and tenon then move on to box joints using two different methods, and both fixed and variable-spaced dovetails.
