Beginning Woodworking Autumn 2020

9th July 2020

In addition to working as a successful cabinet maker, Will Streule has run the Missenden School of Creative Arts and prior to that he taught at Reading College has designed this course to teach the major aspects of Wood Working. This course starts with an overview of common furniture woods and their qualities as well as the basic hand tools and how to sharpen them. Students will then be introduced to basic Wood Working techniques while each making a beautiful wooden box with a few options to suite all skill levels. Some of the skills students will be introduced to include: using a plane, using chisels to produce dovetail joints, turning, using a cabinet scraper among others. Finally students will try out different finishing techniques before choosing one to apply to their box.

Note the price does not include a £25 materials cost which is payable to the instructor on the first day of classes.
