Declan Thomas will take you through all of beginner’s topics you’ll need to get started down your road to creating with wood.
In the first evening of this course, Declan will take you through the basics of wood as a building material, its grain, figure, and where to find it. Then you'll switch gears and cover the world of basic tools and their applications.
The second evening will guide you through commonly used joints, what they're used for, and how to choose one over the other. Additionally you'll see sharpening and hand tool demos as well as be introduced to the basics of squaring, flattening and dimensions wood before trying your hand at cutting your own joinery.
In the third session you will take all the information you have learned and start building a hand made box with hand cut joinery. You will get an opportunity to choose a type of wood and general size of your box then use the tools and joinery you learned about in the previous session. At the end of the day you will go home with a beautiful box that you made with your own two hands.
