Woodshop

Using hand tools, power tools, and some simple designs we'll build projects such as a tool box, shelves, a clock, and small benches or tables.  This class will stress safety and the correct use of a variety of tools and joinery techniques.  Be prepared to learn some new skills, create great projects of your own, as well as possibly build some things that will improve the school.  There is a materials donation requested to offset tools and materials costs.  


Agreements:
  1. Be safe and smart
  2. Use all tools properly and follow instructions exactly
  3. Be observant, assistive, and work in pairs
  4. Safety glasses on, hair back, adult present.
  5. Work with pride and precision
Projects:
Everyone will make the toolbox for the first project and then either the "curvy shelf", "drawer shelf", table/stool, or bench as the second project.


Day 1:
1. Get a crate and a pencil, your stuff, and sit quietly at a table. (you'll do this each day of class)
2. Tell me about something that you've built before.
3. How this class works:  information, instruction, demonstration, action, assistance
4. Projects as a way to learn a skill (and a possibly useful thing to have/give)
5. Types of wood:
-soft, hard, exotic  
-solid, ply, particle, osb
-where it comes from in the tree (video
-knots, grain patterns, strength
5. Types of cuts and the saws that make them: 
-rip, cross, curved
6. Measuring:
-what is shown on a measuring tape?  the loose end.   "burning" an inch
-pieces of an inch (making one, up to 1/16)
-mark your 1x4 at 2 1/2,  7 5/8,  12 7/16,  1' 3.5 "
-don't "freehand" things for which there is a tool
