Date Change: Woodworking Joints Part 1 Now on Sept 10th

A few tools that are helpful in making joints
The workshop on woodworking joints, including rabbet, grooves and dados, has been moved up to Saturday Sept 10th at 10am. We'll be covering how to make rabbets, grooves and dados, what they are useful for and the tools that are used to make them.

July Workshop Date Change

Smooth, Jack or Fore, Jointer or Try
Just a quick note that the workshop on hand planing has switched dates from July 16th to July 23rd. Time, location, and content remain the same so check the Teaching Dates page for details. We'll be learning how fix common lumber problems with planes, as well as how to work the planes themselves. We'll also talk about which ones you need and which ones you don't and when to choose a particular plane. Even if you use power tools to prep your wood a knowledge of planes can add a new dimension to your work. See you on the 23rd, I know I'm looking forward to it.
