    Baseline Skills Workshop signup - Raleigh - July 28

    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)

    Please put me on the list! I won't actually know if I'll be able to attend until the time is closer due to work.

    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.

    Sign me up! I will make it.
    I don't know about you guys, but for me it's all about that feeling of, "Wow, I made that."

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