A gentle introduction to woodworking, including the use of hand tools, power tools and workshop machinery. In just one day a week for 4 weeks Ross will guide you through making a series of small wooden boxes, using increasingly sophisticated techniques each week.
We will cover accurate marking out, and the use of hand planes, drills, and the router, mitre saw, bandsaw and table saw. We will explore a range of joinery options for our boxes, including simple butt joints, rebated joints, biscuit joinery and keyed mitre joints.
