Box Making Weekend Class
Saturday & Sunday 10-6pm
Make a beautiful dovetail box from native hardwood, using only hand tools, complete with dovetail joints and a sliding lid. Perfect for absolute beginners.
On this course you will be introduced to the basics of joinery. Over the weekend you will learn to plane a hardwood log into smooth, straight planks, cut precise dovetail joints and finally assemble together a beautiful hand-crafted wooden box, without the need for glue, nails or modern power tools.
Joinery is a core aspect of woodwork – to the extent that it may be the only aspect that lay people are aware of. At the greenwood guild we know that this is not the case, but we still hugely value the role joinery plays in our craft. In this class you will learn to use handsaws, planes and chisels accurately and efficiently, as well as tool maintenance and sharpening.
