    Event description

    The Introduction to Carpentry series is developed for beginners, who have no previous experience with tools or in workshops. It is a confidence building introduction to simple carpentry skills. 

    Make a Bookshelf covers the fundamentals of tool use and workshop techniques.  In this 1-day course you’ll learn about basic wood types, preparation, sawing, cornering, and construction.

    You will apply your learning as you construct a small bookshelf to take home.

    It covers the fundamentals of tool use and techniques, including:

    · Confidence in your ability to use the following tools correctly and safely – hand and power saws, drill drivers and measuring equipment.

    · Learning to measure and cut accurately

    · Practice simple joinery using drills and screws

    · Familiarise yourself with the workshop environment, practices and health and safety

    What to Bring – Yourself.  All tools and materials are included in the registration.  Morning Tea (tea, coffee and biscuits) is provided.  You will need to provide your own lunch.

    What to Wear – weather appropriate clothes you are happy to get dirty in and sturdy closed-in shoes. We provide safety glasses and ear protection.

    In this introductory unit, you’ll make a small bookshelf from timber to take home with you.
