Exploring Solid Wood Box Making *In-Person* *NEW*

This workshop is intended as an ongoing exploration of solid wood boxes. We will begin with a small dovetail box and move on to any of a wide variety of boxes. You wil learn to make thoughtful material and design choices, to prepare and join wood, and develop sound woodworking habits- we will employ equal amounts of seriousness and levity as we pursue woodworking as a craft discipline. We will employ a hybrid style of woodworking, using hand and machine tools as appropriate. Tools will be provided. Please contact the instructor with any questions: danparet@gmail.com.
