Deck The Hulls With Boatshop Offcuts

December 4–5 last day to register is December 1
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM (one hour for lunch) | $199

This is your chance to spend a weekend in the Boatshop learning the basics. We are offering this course as an opportunity for students to come into the shop and start building a foundational knowledge of all things shop—from safety to basic hand tools, power tools, joinery, gluing, clamping, and so much more. During the process, students will have the opportunity to complete multiple small projects of choice including great holiday gifts such as cutting boards, toys, trinkets, apple boxes, hand tools, and so much more! Students are welcome to utilize the available tool resources here in the shop as well as bring along their own if desired. This is an opportunity to develop and refine skills while working with instructors who are well versed in woodworking.  A plethora of materials will be available for students to choose their projects from. Students are asked to provide their own Personal Protective Equipment, including an N95 mask, eye protection, and ear protection.
