Course Description

This intermediate workshop builds on skills learned during SXW 650. Students learn additional foundation skills to build wood furniture and related objects, incorporating wood physics and joinery concepts. Traditional hand tools, including block planes, cabinet scrapers, and spokeshaves, are introduced, as well as how to safely operate woodworking machinery, including the table saw, band saw, drill press, and miter saw. How to sharpen and maintain hand tools is also covered. The project for this course is a modern chair, based on an early modern design using basic tap and bridle joints.
