Woodworking for Women

View Syllabus

This class will give students a chance to become competent with woodworking tools and the building process. Discussions of joinery techniques and woodworking methods will enable students to get lots of practical hands-on experience. Much of the course will be dedicated to the use of hand held power tools and stationary shop tools such as the table saw, planer, jointer, and mortising machine, with an emphasis on safe tool use. Participants will complete and bring home an elegant, butternut end table with a drawer.


"The sequence was well thought out, and the amount of new material presented each day was perfect.  The instructor's patience and dedication to us was fantastic."

"We learned SO much!! Much more, really, than I thought we would. Lizabeth and Patti clearly know their stuff and did a great job conveying some of their knowledge to us. And, at the end, we each walked away with a really nice table that we each built!"
