The craft of woodworking has existed for centuries, but only recently has it become a hobby that anyone can take up with relative ease. Power tools like the circular saw, jigsaw, and sander, have revolutionised the craft; no longer does it take many days to create a chair.
Over the course of three consecutive Saturdays, Sulakshana or MishtooMade, will teach participants how to use some of the most popular power tools and create magic out of wood!
Participants will learn about the properties of various materials including timber, plywood, particle board, and MDF, as well as how to machine them using power tools.
All participants will also use their new set of woodworking skills to make a side table which they can take back home.
By the end of this course, you will know how to correctly and safely use the circular saw, jig saw, and sander, and will have learned all about the various types of wood, different finishes, and the types of joints that can be made. You also get to make and keep a small side table.
