What you'll learn in this woodworking class:

This class will introduce you to the basic tools and techniques of Japanese Woodworking.

To start the class, you will focus on creating a handmade layout square for marking and measuring as well as handmade sanding blocks to fit the contour of your hand. Discover how to correctly use a marking knife as well as how to cut a straight line with the pull saw. In the later part of the class, you will design and construct saw ponies.

If you have ever needed a large work table, but don’t have enough room to make a permanent solution, simply lay any flat surface onto your new handmade saw ponies to create a quick space to work. You will learn how to hand chop a lap joint and carve the shoulders of the ponies with a mallet & chisels. Other techniques include how to trim joints with a slick and how to use handmade sanding blocks to get a perfect fit.
