Skill - Tool - Project Development

 The Classes you find in this section represent a WIDE variety of woodworking topics. Once you have a basic set of skills with hand tools and machines,  you are going to want to explore different interests. You will find that you might like one type of woodworking and not another. Many woodworkers are exploring new areas of interest all the time. (So in one sense, you are always a beginner) 

Whether you are deepening a particular skill or trying a new woodworking technique,  this is a list of classes for those with some basic experience.

    Hands On Carving Classes


          Instructor- Mary May



     Mary May lives in Charleston, SC and is internationally known.  She is a carver in the classical or traditional sense.  She makes her living carving on commission, teaching in-person classes, publishing and running a successful online carving school.  For more information see her web site by clicking here.  

    The specific projects Mary will teach won't be decided until the spring, but you can expect that there will be several projects in each two day class, and that they will be different.  She has a vast body to choose from and we will pick ones that emphasize skill building so you can apply the techniques to a variety of projects.  Examples of possibilities include carving a scallop shell out of Walnut, an Acanthus leaf in the Renaissance style, a leaf on the shoulder of a cabriole leg, lettering, and architectural moldings.


    COST for each two day class is to be determined but will probably be in the $375 range each . It's free to sign up on the interest list.


    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

    Shellac Finishing: A Short Coarse

    INSTRUCTOR: Chip Webster          


    White Card Required

    Introduction to Finishing


    A brief introduction to wood finishing including a review of selecting, cutting and shaping the lumber, surface preparation, an overview of different film finishes with an initial emphasis on applying shellac, either as a final finish or as a wash coat.  Students will be introduced to appropriate ways to prepare the wood and how to apply shellac with a variety of tools and techniques and various approaches to correct defects.

    Surface Preparation 

    The finish you put on your woodworking project will highlight and magnify every defect in your wood and workmanship. The time invested to properly prepare the surface of the boards in your project will pay dividends in the result. 

    We will experiment with sanding and the use of cutting tools (hand planes and card scrapers) to prepare the surface of sample boards. We’ll examine the various types of abrasives commonly available and sanding tools and techniques.  We will compare sanded and cut surfaces side by side and apply a seal coat to view the results.  The value of testing, sample boards and accompanying documentation will be demonstrated.

    We will address issues such as dents, gouges, holes and glue spots, types and use of lighting to detect surface imperfections and inspect coverage, the use of solvents to examine the expected color and look of a board prior to finishing. 

    Shellac

    We will learn about the many uses of this age old natural finish as both a seal coat and top coat finish.  We’ll explore correcting surface preparation issues and blotching that occurs in some commonly used woods. We will compare sanded and cut surfaces side by side and apply a shellac seal coat to view the results.  We"ll document the results on sample boards. Brush on and wipe-on application techniques and tools will be demonstrated; storage, clean-up and related topics will be covered. 

    If you have questions, please contact class coordinator Bob Sokolow, by email, bobsokolow@yahoo.com

    INTEREST LIST - not a class (yet)


    Register your interest in taking the six week class to introduce you to Classical Carving.


          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart



     Chuck Rinehart has now taught this class four times for us, and has taught it many times before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

    Tool sets of eleven carving tools are available to rent for $50 for the class plus an extra month, and unless you have your own tools, or intend to buy them (about $200-400), we encourage you to rent and focus instead on learning to carve.

    The class will be three sessions, each four hours, spaced roughly once a week.

    COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on this interest list.  You will need to buy or borrow the Chris Pye book called "Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual", about $15 from a variety of sources, including Amazon, Powell's and Woodcrafters.


    The class outline is:

    Week 1:  Tools nomenclature and handling, grain exercise (the donut), and exercises from Chapter 4 of Pye's book

    Week 2:  Review of homework, discuss the V tool (aka parting tool, #12 or #41), and the small veiner (#11/3), and do the Pye Burhead Bull project in Chapter 7 using both.  Demo relieving the background using a large #11/16, trace the outline of your shallow leaf project, and get started with your homework.

    Week 3:  Arrive with your leaf project background complete and carve the leaf.  


    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

    INTEREST LIST - Carving a Border with Chuck Rinehart- not a class (yet)


    Register your interest in taking the six week class to introduce you to the wonderful world of carving a border.


          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart



     Chuck Rinehart taught this class once for us but has taught it before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

    This is a three week introduction class based on classical patterns useful for frames and borders for furniture and architectural (decorative) purposes.  In three weeks you will learn enough to accomplish quite a bit, but you will also learn this is a big field with lots of options and time required.   Hopefully this class will whet your appetite, and it will also teach you some techniques for other types of carving.

    You are required to have long handled tools useful for lettering, along with having a carving mallet and access to a variety of gouges.  The Guild ownssome tools that might be useful for you in case you don't have any.

    Prior carving experience is required and taking Chuck's Intro class first is recommended.

    The project for this class will be a floral pattern from antiquity, about 36" long by 4" tall.  You will learn how to create the pattern by copying, enlarging and repeating an existing design, trace it onto your wood, and then use a plunge router with small straight bits to remove the bulk of the background before shaping the elements of the floral design.  It is a challenging, but interesting and practical project.


    COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on the interest list.


    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

    INTEREST LIST - Carving a Monogram with Chuck Rinehart- not a class (yet)


    Register your interest in taking the six week class to introduce you to the wonderful world of carving monograms.


          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart





    Chuck Rinehart has not taught this class for us yet but has before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

    This is a three week introduction class based on classical patterns useful for decorating furniture and making stand-alone designs.  In three weeks you will learn enough to accomplish quite a bit, but you will also learn this is a big field with lots of options and time required.   Hopefully this class will whet your appetite, and it will also teach you some techniques for other types of carving.

    You are required to have long handled tools useful for lettering, along with having a carving mallet and access to a variety of gouges.  The Guild owns some tools that might be useful for you in case you don't have any.

    Prior carving experience is required and taking Chuck's Intro class first is recommended.

    The project for this class will create a pattern of your design, using elements from classical books on stylized lettering from antiquity.  The design can be as simple or complex as you want, and what you choose almost doesn't matter, because you will be learning the techniques needed to create a wide variety of patterns.


    COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on the interest list.

    Carving an Acanthus Leaf.


          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart or Mary May



    Carving an Acanthus leaf teaches you many skills that can be applied to other forms of carving.  The leaf itself comes in many styles, and has evolved over at least two thousand years and many are stylized forms of an ideal, even though you can find actual leaves in gardens in Portland.

    We have two possibilities for teaching - one with Chuck Rinehart and the other with Mary May.

    Chuck Rinehart has now taught this class several times for us, and has taught it many times before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  His design is quite challenging and was developed by his mentor, a British Master Carver named Ian Agrell.  This is a three week class, which was originally part of the six week Introduction to Classical Carving class, but we broke that into two sequences of three weeks each, the Foundations class and one on the Acanthus leaf.

    Mary May is coming in October 2019 to teach two, two-day classes and there is a possibility she can include one of her thirteen different styles into one of the classes.  She wrote a comprehensive book on carving these designs, and a copy is in the Guild library.  For an extra fee, you can also watch or download detailed videos at her online school.

    There is a fairly large set of tools that are required and some sets are available to rent from the Guild at a cost of about $75 (TBD), if you don't have or don't want to invest in your own tools at this time.

    Chuck's class will be three sessions, each four hours, spaced every other week for you to do the required homework.

    COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on this interest list.  


    You must have prior carving experience with mallet-capable tools, nominally Chuck's Foundations of Classical Carving.


    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

    Carving (and Designing) a Sign


          Instructors- Chuck Rinehart and Steve Hickcox


    We are exploring the possibility of creating a three week class to design and carve a sign.

    Steve Hickcox has professional experience making signs and will partner with Chuck Rinehart, who will help with the carving.  

    This is an outgrowth of Chuck's letter carving class.  The design issues are significant and will likely take two of the three sessions to work through choices for fonts, wording, inter-letter and inter-word spacing, wood choices as well as decorative treatment and finishing alternatives.  You will largely be doing the actual sign construction and carving on your own.

    While you chose your own sign, one idea is to develop a sign for your own home shop, or perhaps for the studio of your mate or friend.

    Prior carving and woodworking experience is expected.

    Cost of the class is probably $180 but does not include the wood for the sign or tools. It's free to sign up on this interest list.  

    If you have any questions, please contact Larry Wade at lpwade@gmail.com.

    INTEREST LIST - Introduction to Letter Carving - not a class (yet)


    Register your interest in taking the three week class to introduce you to Letter Carving.


          Instructor- Chuck Rinehart



    Chuck Rinehart taught this class twice for us but has taught it before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

    This is a three week introduction class based on the techniques created and documented by Chris Pye in his book and on his online school.  In three weeks you will learn enough to accomplish quite a bit, but you will also learn this is a big field with lots of options and time required.   Hopefully this class will whet your appetite, and it will also teach you some techniques for other types of carving.

    You are required to buy three long handled tools useful for lettering, along with having a carving mallet and access to a variety of gouges to cut the curved shapes.  The Guild owns some tools that might be useful for you in case you don't have any.

    The class uses Chris Pye's text that is out of print but you will be able to borrow one of the Guild's copies or get one from a library.  The used copies have gotten ridiculously expensive, approaching $100.

    Prior carving experience is required and taking Chuck's Intro class first is recommended.

    COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on the interest list.

    The purpose of this class is to familiarize you with the core power tools in the Guild’s workshop, and provide you with our safety criteria and procedures for using them. In this class you will view a video on safety, grade your written safety test (that you have completed prior to class), and review the Guild’s shop practices

    Prior to the Safety and Orientation meeting you must:

    1. Study the Tool Safety Manual on how to use the tools safely

    2 . Take the Tool Safety Exam with answers recorded on the Answer Sheet  You should have no trouble passing this test since it is open book and the answers are in the Tool safety manual

    In addition to the video and written test, we will also introduce you to all of the basic machines in the shop as well as what you have to demonstrate to pass the HOST (Hands On Safety Test)

    We will then discuss whether you are ready to take the HOST or if you need additional training. A self assessment form is available to help you decided. We will review of the training options that are available.
