The second in the series will be Basic Woodwork 2: Build a Tool Tote which will be held Saturday, October 12 and 19 from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon. Participants in this class will each build their own tool tote while learning to use basic hand tools. Tools students will be using include saws, chisels, brace, various squares, marking gauge and hand planes. The tote is joined together with dovetails and dados which participants will mark and cut themselves. The cost of the Basic Woodwork 1workshop series is $150.
The cost of materials is included in the fee for each of these workshops but students are required to bring their own tape ruler and #2 pencil. Although they are provided, those who have their own chisels and dovetail saw may wish to bring those as well if participating in Basic Woodwork 2.
