Shop, Chisel, and Saw takes us from the origins of woodworking with hand tools through hybrid techniques for getting work done quickly with machines. This class serves as an intro to the shop and covers shop safety, tool sharpening, design, layout, milling, drying of rough lumber, and a plethora of techniques for shaping wood for your desired end product. During this class, you will sharpen a provided chisel to a razor sharp mirror finish for you to take home, examine the characteristics of an efficient pack saw, and craft a hardwood take down bucksaws to last generations. We will take a look at techniques for strong wood joints and finishing your saw to ensure durability.Three daily-catered meals are sourced on site and from our partners at local farms.
