I am pleased to announce a new series of workshops to build and reinforce baseline woodworking skills using both power and hand tools

The July workshop will be focused on lumber selection and milling using a mix of tooling with plenty of hands-on exercises

Class details:
- lumber grading and sources
- rough vs S2 vs S4
- lumber storage
- power milling using jointer, planer, table saw and bandsaw
- hand tool alternatives for above
- checking for flat and square (including 5 cut method)
- hand plane and scraper honing demo and exercise
- hand plane and scraper exercise to remove milling marks, size adjustment and ready for finish without sanding

Class will run from 9am to 3 or 4 pm at my shop in NE Raleigh (shop has AC). Lunch will be provided

Cost of class is $30 donation to site - NO charge for active military

I cannot be held responsible for participants gaining a desire for Hammer, Powermatic or Lie-Nielsen tools

Next in the series of Baseline Skills workshops will be joinery probably late August

To ensure enough hands-on for all, the max number of students will be eight

Sign-up by responding to this post - I will keep list below

1. Clay (cobraguy)
2. Michael Mathews
3. Cole (coletrain)
4. Mike (patlaw)
5. Johnny (jcz)
6. Johnathon (breakyr)
7. Lecil (wooduser)
8. Greg (jgregj)

Will this be a one day class? On Saturday? I may be interested.
Yes this class will be one day on Saturday July 28. There will be followup classes on other baseline skills on other Saturdays.

If my schedule allows, I will do a class each month on different basic skills

Possible future schedule would be:
August - basic joinery
Sept - edge treatment
Oct - ??

I'm interested and the date sounds good but I'll have to ask my parents if I can go that far for a class. I'm almost 2 hours away.

I would like to attend. I have little experience with the hand tools and would appreciate the opportunity to learn how to use them

I don't know? I have been hearing a lot about a snake infested workshop area. You guys may want to take a sharp shovel with you.
I'm just saying.........

Actually they do taste just like chicken. Best to cut up in nugget size and cook on a stick over a camp fire. Easy to clean, just hold by the head, cut the skin around just behind the head and peel off the skin - be careful, they do tend to get mad when you do this
