Classes and Workshops

Router Basics - with David Tilson

Date: August 16, 2014

Time: 1pm - 5pm

Overview: If you want to expand your woodworking repertoire, the router is the tool to master.  This class covers everything from how to choose the best router for the job to cutting and milling operations with handheld and table-mounted routers.  Students will complete a project by pattern routing, making simple inlays, and forming edges. Reservations are required. Students must bring their own safety glasses, hearing protection, and routers with ¼" collets (plunge & fixed bases if available).  A very limited number of routers are available for students who cannot bring their own router; reservations must be made in advance.  All materials costs are included.

Skill Level: Beginner

 

 

Router Dovetail Machines - with David Tilson

Date: August 23, 2014

Time: 1pm - 5pm

Overview: If you’ve just gotten a new dovetail machine, or if you’re tired of running through your entire scrap pile making test cuts and still not getting a tight-fitting joint, this is the class for you. You’ll get step-by-step guidance through the entire process using either the Rockler or the Porter Cable 4200-series dovetail machine, from preparing the project materials to fine-tuning the final fit of the dovetail joint, all while learning how to cut dovetails safely and with your own tools!  Reservations are required. Students must bring their own safety glasses, hearing protection, router, and dovetail machine with bits (Rockler or Porter Cable 4200 series only, please). A very limited number of routers and dovetail machines are available for loan during the class, but only by prior arrangement.  All materials costs are included.

Skill Level: Beginner

Cost:  $60

 

Sharpening - with David Tilson

Date: August 30, 2014

Time: 1pm - 5pm

Overview: In this class you’ll learn how to sharpen common woodworking tools using methods such as water- and oilstones, bench grinders, the Tormek and Work Sharp grinding systems, and more.  Topics include bevel angles, secondary bevels (micro bevels) and hollow grinds; polishing compounds, rust removal & prevention, and diamond stones.  Advance reservations required.  It is strongly recommended that students bring their own tools to sharpen, and learn on their own sharpening equipment if possible.  However, this also might be a great way to try out that shiny blue grinder you've been eyeing for months now!  Also, students must bring their own safety glasses.

Skill Level: Beginner

Cost: $50
