Fundamentals of Woodworking

All Levels
June 12 - June 16, 2023

Beginning with rough lumber, students will learn to build a small coffee table or side table from start to finish. We will cover the use of hand tools and machinery, as well as milling processes, joinery methods, and finishing techniques. Expect to leave with a small table and confidence in techniques that you can use for years to come! This workshop is tailored to those who have never worked in wood before or want to brush up on their skills.
