Short Course: Basic Woodworking

13 January to 3 February 2020
10am – 1pm

This event is at STEAMhouse

Monday 13, 20, 27 January and 3 February, 10am-1pm

This course is now fully booked

This course runs across four weeks and participants must attend all four sessions.

Over the four weeks participants will each make an ash and birch plywood side table. In doing so you will learn a variety of jointing techniques and in doing so develop traditional hand-skills and become confident in the use of basic woodworking machinery and power tools.

This course has been designed for people who have ideas they would like to develop, but who need to develop skills and confidence in the wood workshop. Exploring these various methods will introduce participants to the basic skills which form a foundation for prototyping and mocking up design ideas.

The course will include:

An introduction to marking and measuring tools
Marking and measuring mortice and tenons
Handcutting tenons
Chiselling joints
Drilling and screwing joints
Bandsawing joints
Linear beltsanding components
Hand planing components
Gluing Components
Sanding for finishing

STEAMhouse’s programmes are fully funded. Spaces are very limited and priority will be given to self-employed sole traders and people with their own businesses who have an idea they would like to develop at STEAMhouse. This course is designed for individuals with limited experience of working in a wood workshop who want to develop more skills and confidence.
