Joinery is a combination of accuracy plus patience. This week long seminar focuses exclusively on mortise and joinery skills. Learn methods, applications, and great techniques with the author of The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery. Discover how to design and lay-out joinery for a small foot stool using blind tenon joints. You’ll cut mortise using several different methods: hand tools, routers, and power tools. Get practice in using hardwoods and hone your hand skills for cutting and paring. Learn to use your router, band saw, drill press and table saw for precise, repeatable joinery that you’ll use in your next project and for years to come.
Take the time, join us and immerse yourself in the art of joinery. It will be a fun class where you will learn hand skills for sawing and chisel work as well as tuning your fit with hand planes. Get practice on the router table and with a drill press to create mortise and tenons. And build several small projects that will delight you in years to come. You’ll get time to cut mortise and tenons in a small table project, learn how to cut rabbets for box joinery, and hand cut some dovetails, maybe for the first time. Certainly not the last.
