Get acquainted (or reacquainted) with the woodshop in this dynamic, hands-on workshop. Learn the basics of woodworking and furniture making as you build a project of your own. Topics to be covered include cutting pieces to size, joinery, and shaping. (Finishing, too if we have time.) The class is centered on the construction of a small bookshelf--about 30 inches wide and 42 inches tall--built from materials commonly available at any home center. The exact size and the detailing of the bookcase is customizable to suit your space. Beginner and Beyond
