Essick Woodworking School

Sawdust 101


Sawdust 101

In this weekend class we start at zero.  Our goal is to offer beginners a safe and fun introduction to woodworking.  Safe use of most of the more common hand and power tools will be thoroughly covered.  Safety is a high priority and we will make sure everyone learns good habits when using power tools.  Students will choose two of the three projects we offer (step stool, tool caddy or chopping board).   First timers will also learn simple layout skills and the logical sequence of how most things are constructed.  Our goal is to provide newcomers with the confidence and ability to take on more challenging and rewarding projects. Choose any two projects for $285 (materials included).

Some of the tools used in this class are:

  • Tablesaw
  • Bandsaw
  • Drill press
  • Disc sander
  • Spindle sander
  • Router table
  • Palm sander
  • Cordless drill
  • Handheld router
