This course is designed for students who possess a basic knowledge of woodworking and shop machinery to build up their fundamental skills and learn new joinery and techniques. Students will spend 20 classes building a traditional drop-leaf table with a dovetail drawer. The first class will take place off-site at a mill where the instructor will offer guidance on the process of buying wood including material selection, board inspection and measuring, and the nomenclature and etiquette of the scene. Students will purchase their wood during this trip. In the first half of the course, students will work through familiar processes of milling and mortise-and-tenon joinery to construct a basic table. The remaining classes will involve procedures in drawer box assembly and table leaf construction with extensive use of the hand-held plunge router machine. This course is a great way to keep your skills sharp and broaden your scope of shop equipment capabilities and personal woodworking potential.
This is a 20-week course.
There is no class on 2/26 and 4/22
