What you'll learn in this woodworking class:

In this introductory class, students will learn basic use and safety of a variety of equipment, including the table saw, hand saws, hand planes, sanders, drills and chisels. This introductory class will also cover how to correctly measure and create a cut list for projects. Students will have the option to make one of several project options: a napkin holder, toilet paper holder, or cutting board.  

If you have ear and eye protection, bring it along, if not we can provide the basics.

Jess was a great teacher! Initially I was a bit unsure whether making a cutting board would be a fulfilling task, but as she took us through the process, using band saw, table saw, joiners, planers, drills, sanders, and so on, it became clear that it is a great intro to woodworking, as you get familiarity with all of the main tools.
