    Make a cutting board while learning how to use power tools. We will cover using the electric planer, ripping on the table saw, cross cutting on the miter saw, curved cuts on the bandsaw, and finishing. This is a great chance to get to know, or brush up on the most powerful tools in the shop. Take home your very own cherry or maple cutting board at the end.

    The materials fee for this class is $20 and is included in the admission cost.

    Learn about the principles of Timber Framing. Through theory, demonstrations and hands-on practice-- learn to carve the two fundamental joints in timber framing (the mortise and tenon) and familiarize yourself with square rule layout, design conventions, reading the grain, and using a variety of hand and power tools. No prior power tool experience required but some upper body strength, strong vision and tape measure familiarity will benefit you a lot! You will leave the workshop with a tenon and a mortise checker for any future timber framing projects and the knowledge of how to start a larger project, what tools are necessary, and what resources are out there for deepening your understanding.

    The materials fee for this class is $20 and is included in the admission cost.
