Making a box is a great way to up your woodworking skills without using a lot of material or space. Boxes also allow you play with colour, different wood species and different techniques. This box has dovetailed corners and a lift-off rabbeted lid. In this class you will learn to:
- Layout and cut dovetails with hand tools
- Mark and measure with confidence
- Make a rabbeted lid
- Assemble without stress
- Pick and apply a suitable finish
Vic will be demonstrating both hand and power tool techniques that will get the job done accurately and efficiently. This box has a single dovetail on each corner and is sized perfectly to store 1/4-sheets of letter-sized paper. In the end, you will leave with a beautiful box and a whole host of woodworking skills that you can apply to almost any build.
All tools and materials will be provided. Boxes will be made from cherry. In this class students will be using router table, clamps, pliers, saws, mallets, chisels, block plane, marking knife, coping saw and various sanding tools.
