Each student will build a small wall hung shelving unit - learning how to plan out a project, create and maintain a sharp cutting edge on chisels and hand planes, and layout/cut dovetail and mortise and tenon joints. You must have taken Libby's prior class in power tools in order to take this class. There is a required tool list available online and with registration, as well as a materials fee of $40 (subject to market pricing) to be paid to the instructor on the first day of class.
