IMG_8929I was asked the other day if I taught classes.

I have taught many classes over the years – Maths, Digital Photography, Computer repair and Web Design, and for a year I taught a basic woodworking class as part of the United Kingdom’s Design Technology course. On occasions I have given individual instruction and worked on many projects with various people.

So with decades of experience working wood and hundreds of projects behind me. I thought I would offer individual tuition for up to two students at a time.  Classes will be 3 hours long starting at 1pm Sat or Sun.

Classes will cover standard woodworking topics such as:

Introduction to basic dovetail joinery – In this class you will learn how to use hand tools, layout techniques for the classic through dovetail, and half-blind dovetail used in drawer construction, $115

Introduction to basic Mortise and Tenon Joinery – In this class you will learn layout techniques for creating mortise and tenons – this course will also Introduce you to sharpening chisels and Plane irons $115

Advanced joinery – blind dovetails – sliding dovetails – $115

Using hand planes – preparing wood, jointing, finishing, chamfering, and rebates  – $115

Personalized Instruction –  you pick the topic – $115

Additional Personalized Instruction – $40/hour

All prices are per student. Family discounts are available for parent/child or spouse instruction. Contact me to register for classes.
