The goal of this workshop by Sanborn Mills Farm is to provide a safe space to gain and build confidence in very basic carpentry skills and tool use. Students will be able to get hands-on with many of the tools they would need to complete simple projects and home repairs (ie: shelves, boxes, trim, etc.).
This workshop will provide an introduction to safe hand and power tool use, including skill saws, chop saws, jigsaws, table saws, drills/drivers, layout and measuring tools, chisels, mallets, and hand planes. Emphasis will be on essential tools that are easily accessible – things that can easily be purchased at hardware or home improvement stores. It will include an overview of project planning, material selection, layout, and construction for a simple project. Students will then use those skills to complete a small item to take home (ie: shelf, tool caddy).
Materials Fee: $25 Paid at the time of workshop.
