Woodcraft of Atlanta Class Skill Level Descriptions

Below are the instructor expectations for the student taking a class.

Beginner Skill Level Class

  • Someone who has never stepped foot in a woodshop or has not worked with wood for a number of years and looking to restart the hobby and/or refresh their skills
  • May have experience as a weekend warrior, but has not used this particular piece of equipment or explored this aspect of woodworking
  • Does not know or is unfamiliar with the specific terms/names used.


Beginner/Intermediate Skill Level Class

  • For Someone who has never stepped foot in a woodshop, returning to the hobby after an extended absence, or for someone who is looking to explore a different aspect of woodworking.
  • The learning curve is shallow enough that a beginner will not feel “left behind”, yet some with a little more skill will not feel the class is “slow”.
  • Even though this is considered an intro course, someone with some skill will receive enough “new” information that the class will be useful.
  • May know how to do something, but not the specific terms used or the 'why' they are doing a procedure a particular way.
  • May know how to read a plan, but not necessarily how to choose the wood needed


Intermediate Skill Level Class

  • Someone who has already taken a class & this is next in the series
  • Has built, completed & applied a finish to a number of projects
  • Understands the specific terms used when describing a procedure
  • Can read a plan and select the required lumber
  • Looking to acquire/refine a specific skill set
  • Already has most of the tools required or plans on getting them for the class
  • The Instructor has interviewed the perspective student and determines that the material being taught will not be overwhelming
  • Class will seem faster-paced to a Beginner, Instructor will not have to time to review the 'Basics' assuming you already have the required skill set
