The Main Event

This Woodworking for Beginners course offers a comprehensive introduction to the craft, catering to both novices with no prior woodworking experience and those seeking to enhance their existing woodworking skills.

You'll delve into the fundamental techniques essential for woodworking, focusing on precision and accuracy. Throughout the course, you'll master the art of sawing straight and square, acquire the skills to accurately mark out and cut joints, and learn the effective use of hand tools such as chisels and planes. The emphasis is on practical application, ensuring that everyone gains confidence in fitting and finishing woodworking projects.

By the end of the course you'll not only possess a newfound proficiency in woodworking but will also take home proof of your efforts - a skilfully crafted toolbox.
