Fundamentals III is for advanced beginners and woodworkers who wish to develop more advanced skills and refine their craftsmanship. Students will practice various joinery and construction techniques to build an heirloom quality solid wood Shaker-inspired table with a dovetailed drawer, tapered legs, and mortise-and-tenoned aprons. Along the way, we will further develop hand-tool skills including sharpening and shaping, and will introduce some additional advanced techniques. The finish will be a hand applied oil finish, with time to apply at least one coat during class.
NOTE: Students who complete all three Fundamentals of Traditional Woodworking classes receive an engraved certificate of accomplishment.
