Course Two (Wood and Things)
This is a continuation of course 1 (tools and things) with the emphases on timber, what are acceptable defects in timber and what isn't, how do you write out a cutting list that means something to your supplier, what to look for when buying wood and what to avoid. You will ideally have done course 1 (tools and things) or have a good working knowledge of how to use hand tools and have used hand held power tools.
The same basic tool kit and apron will be provided for you whilst you are with me.
The projects for you to pick from will be more complicated and will involve the use of the more sophisticated hand tools and hand held power tools and will include using some of the static power tools in the workshop. We will also be looking at buying timber with a visit to a local timber yard and making cutting lists and drawing plans.
The level of accuracy that is required to successfully complete the projects will be greater. There will still be a maximum of 4 per week so that I will be there to help when you need me.
The same timings as course 1 will apply and you will find that I have run the course 1 and course 2 end to end so that if you want to you can do them both and have 2 weeks in the Lake District.
After this week I would hope that you will feel confident enough to tackle most of the woodworking projects that you will want to do and be able to buy wood with the confidence of knowing what you are talking about.
And just as on Course 1, you will be here to enjoy your week and take home another achievement.
