Fundamentals of Traditional Woodworking III J20
October, 12 - November, 19 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM$1005
Fundamentals III is for advanced beginners and woodworkers who wish to practice their skills and refine their craftsmanship. Students will employ various joinery and construction techniques to build a 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 more advanced techniques.
Students who complete all three Fundamentals of Traditional Woodworking classes receive a framed certificate of accomplishment.
