Humming Along – Woodworking with Power Tools (BF19)

Instructor: Chris McGrody

The hum of jointers and planers, table saws and drill presses, band saws and routers, signal a new creation in wood. Safe use of these power tools will turn a rough length of pine into a handsome and functional two-step stool ready for finishing. This class will prepare you to work solo during open studio hours.
