Take advantage of this class to create a hand tool foundation that you can build on. Learning to use hand tools correctly will open an entirely new woodworking experience, one that is enjoyable, very satisfying, and not as loud or dusty.Not many things in woodworking are more discouraging or frustrating than trying to use dull or neglected tools. In this twelve-week, one night per week class, you will learn how to use a handsaw and tune-up and use a hand plane, chisels, marking gauge, and marking knife. This is a skills-based class with a heavy emphasis on fundamentals, proper technique and safety.Students will be taught how to layout and execute fine joinery such as mortise and tenon, through dovetails, and half-blind dovetails. The instructor will also talk about wood movement and what can happen if you don't allow for it.During this class, students will build a traditional wall-hung cupboard with dovetailed casework using quality hardwood.Students will be required to bring some hand tools and they will learn how to make these tools perform at their optimum. Some of the lessons are:Sharpening chisels and plane ironsHand tool tune-upSawing to a lineProper use of a chiselUsing marking gauges and marking knives for accurate linesUsing a hand planeMortise and tenon joineryDovetail joineryWood movementWhere and how to purchase furniture grade lumberRequired Tools:Hand plane (number 3 or 4)Chisels (1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1")Marking knifeTape measureCombination squareMalletStudents are encouraged to bring the following tools but they are not required:Dovetail saw (western, Japanese, or gent)Marking gauge

Making Cabriole Legs with Steve Brown
All

Part 1: Saturday, December 3, 9 AM - 3 PM
Part 2: Sunday, December 4, 9 AM - 3 PM

Class Size: 6-8
Description: Cabriole legs are one of the most familiar elements in 18th century period furniture. Their graceful silhouette can be enhanced with different amounts of shaping as well as a variety of design options for the feet. While it can seem intimidating for some, there are methods and techniques which simplify the process of designing and fashioning these stylish legs. This class will take students through that process starting with the patterns used, with discussion of design considerations for laying out and making the pattern. Then they will apply the pattern lines to the leg blanks, learn the steps involving band sawing, fairing the sawn surfaces and shaping the corners of the leg to soften the appearance. The 2 feet taught in this class are the turned pad foot and the slipper foot, both fairly simple and quick to produce, once understood. Time limitations will require some information to be taught by illustration and/or demonstration. Students will be learning to use the bandsaw to saw out at least one leg and will be doing the bulk of the fairing and shaping with hand tools at the bench. Necessary Tools: · #49 or 50 Nicholson Pattern-maker’s rasp (or reasonable equivalent)· Half-round file (Hablis)· 1” bench chisel· Card scraper Optional Tools:· Flat bottom spokeshave· Round bottom spokeshave

18th Century Silver Chest with Michael McGrath

Part 5: Wednesday, February 1, 6 PM - 9 PM
Part 6: Wednesday, February 8, 6 PM - 9 PM

Class Size: 4-6
Description: This chest is a reproduction of a late 18th century or early 19th century silver chest. In modern times it will find itself useful as a jewelry chest, tool box, or storage for important or sentimental articles. This piece is constructed from sapele mahogany and maple is used as a secondary wood. There are many dovetails in this project so experience in this type of joinery is preferable. Inlay, which consists of stringing and sand shaded fans, will be incorporated in the chest. The timeline for this project is ambitious so some of the chest might have to be completed by the student after class. If this is the case, everyone will leave with the knowledge they need to complete the chest with common hand tools. Because there are so many hardware choices for this period, it will be chosen and supplied by the student.

Bench Tool Sharpening with Steve Brown
Beginner

Saturday, January 21, 9 AM - 3 PM

Class Size: 4-6
Description: The most fundamental part of woodworking is sharp tools. A sharp tool cuts more cleanly, precisely, and is much safer than a dull one. This class will be part lecture and demonstration, and part hands on, covering natural and man made water stones, oil stones, diamond stones, and diamond paste. Feel free to bring an old chisel or two and come and see for yourself what a truly sharp tool looks like, and how it feels to use. No tools are required, and there will be a few chisels on hand to practice with for students who don't bring their own. Demonstrations will focus mainly on bench chisels and plane irons, but some of the lecture will cover special cases including, but not limited to draw knives, low angle spoke shaves, and mortise chisels.Students must bring a 3/4" or 1" bench chisel for sharpening.

A Taste Of Bowl Turning with Rick Angus
All

Saturday, February 18, 10 AM - 4 PM

Class Size: 4-6
Description: In this fast-paced class, we explore fundamental gouge and scraper cutting techniques for cross-grain woodturning. Using these techniques, turners cut wood efficiently and leave a smooth accurate surface on their work. We learn how to use the bevel gracefully to guide the knife edge along a smooth curve and why this technique allows such smooth tool control. Any surface imperfections are smoothed with a scraper and develop an eye for making the shape desired. We will mount a round section of a plank on a faceplate and turn the outside profile of the bowl and provide a spigot or recess on the bottom. Using a scroll chuck, we remount the blank on the spigot or in the recess and turn the rim and inside of the bowl. Lastly, we grip the bowl by the rim in a jam chuck and finish the foot. This fundamental technique can be used to turn bowls of many sizes and shapes. In such a short class, we focus on learning technique rather than production; it's a perfect way to get a taste of bowl turning to see if you really like it.

A Taste Of Spindle Turning with Rick Angus
Beginner

Sunday, February 19, 10 AM - 3 PM

Class Size: 4-6
Description: In this fast-paced class, students will be trained in fundamental chisel and gouge spindle-cutting techniques of spindle woodturning. Using these techniques, turners cut wood efficiently and leave a smooth accurate surface in their work. We learn how to use the bevel gracefully to guide the knife edge along a smooth curve and why this technique allows such smooth tool control. This class focuses on practicing proper techniques and we make a series of totems that contain examples of each cut that you learn; these serve as a reminder of the techniques that you learned. Beginning by roughing the blank to a cylinder, we practice the planing, chamfer and peeling cuts with the skew chisel. We proceed to the detail gouge and learn coves and beads. By putting all the techniques together, we will develop an eye for making the shape desired. The results of your practice are your totems for use as reference when making other projects.
