Description

Joinery, the process of mechanically fastening pieces of stock together, can be executed in a wide variety of ways.   In this weekend class, we will take an in-depth look at using machinery to approach a broad assortment of joints including dovetails, mortise and tenon, miters, stub tenon frame and panel construction, splines, dadoes and so forth.  Once we’ve gained an understanding of how standard machines such as the table saw, bandsaw, and mortiser can work for us, we’ll look at the smaller hand-held tools including the domino and biscuit joiners and even the infamous Kreg jig. An important part of the weekend will include examining joinery strategies that will add accuracy, speed and efficiency to your work.  It will be a full weekend with lots of valuable information to digest and use in your own shop.
