Woodworking with Machines, @THE WARREN
Woodworking with Machines
25th February – 18th March 2021
The Warren, 2a Cross St, Auckland
This four-week course will teach you how to safely operate the essential machinery in a wood workshop. Learn to select wood, mill wood to square, and gain confidence on major woodworking machines, including the mitre saw, jointer, thickness planer, disc sander, and router.
The aim of the game is to make a super solid laminated chopping board, made from reclaimed timber that we have salvaged from building skips and villa demolitions (when in supply).
Woodworking with machines is suitable for beginners, and includes a full workshop induction, therefore attendees of this class are able to later use the machines without enrolling in a separate induction class.
