NOTE: Our SUMMER PROGRAM for CHILDREN is canceled, along with all SUMMER and FALL In-House classes.
Intermediate Woodworking: Mantel Clock 1W20
Take your basic skills one step further. Add the lathe, band saw, drill press and hand mortise and tenon joints to your repertoire, and increase your comfort with table saw, planer and jointer. Introduce an element of your own design as well. Build an Arts and Crafts style mantle clock with mortise and tenon joinery, and a veneered panel set in a glass door.
Good for students who have completed Basic Woodworking: Box, but want the next step before going to Woodworking Open Shop. More advanced students will also enjoy creating an elegant piece with this master craftsman.
Note: This class moves at a deliberate pace. Complete attendance is highly recommended. Please read our withdrawal policies before you register.
