Designed for both the beginner and experienced woodworkers. Emphasis will be on fundamentals of tools, machines and materials to create projects.

Topics such as repairs, restoration and refurbishing of existing pieces will be covered for those interested. No class 11/27. Projects should be transportable. Participants are responsible for additional supply costs of their individual projects.
