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.

    Foundations of Classical Carving with Chuck Rinehart 20-1

    A White Card is Not Required


    This is a three week class that covers the essential topics with a lot of hands-on work, to prepare you for more adventuresome projects.  No prior carving experience is assumed, nor experience with long handled carving gouges.

    Each session is four hours of classroom time.  An additional but optional two hour carving "lab" time is scheduled from 2:00 - 4:00 for doing homework.

    Chuck Rinehart has been woodworking for 60 years and the last 25 have included an extensive background in classical European carving.  This will be a hands-on opportunity to be guided by an expert.  Chuck taught carving classes in Rochester, NY before moving here in 2017.

    The class is limited to seven students because there is a lot of personal supervision and limited space for carving benches.

    This class requires specific carving tools, and a detailed list can be seen by clicking here, which shows tools in both major numbering systems (metric and imperial, Swiss and British).  If you don't have carving tools now, we strongly suggest that you rent a set from the Guild in order to make better investment decisions.  The cost of new tools can be $200-300, and many require sharpening or tuneup.  The Guild bought substantial collections from two estates, and we have sets to rent for $50 for you use and take home for the duration of the class plus a few weeks afterwards, already sharpened, as a way to keep your initial costs down while you explore whether you want to continue. 

    For the duration of the course you will be provided a mallet, stropping kit, plaster cast of the leaf, and the wood to do your projects (Basswood or Butternut).

    The four hours per session are mostly you carving, interspersed with demonstrations and lectures.  The culminating project is the leaf design shown above.  Preceding this are training projects on tool familiarity and handling, experiencing right and wrong ways to handle grain, using mallets, and how to be safe, 

    The class will be held in three weekly sessions at the Multnomah Art Center (MAC).  You should arrive at least 20 minutes early to set up your bench and get organized.  You will be encouraged to carve at home between sessions, and the more you are able to do the better, but we know time is limited for some.  .

    You will be required to buy or borrow  "Chris Pye's Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual "(Fox Chapel), about $15 on Amazon, lower price if used, Powell's might have it, and copies are sometimes available in libraries.

    We strongly encourage you to register for the free section Mary May's online school of traditional carving (click here).  There are seven free lessons but watch the introduction video and the one on caring the donut (grain training).  Later on you can decide whether to watch the two sharpening videos or subscribe to more of her lessons ($15/month). 

    Students should plan to bring any food they need; lunch will not be provided, but there will be drinks and some snacks.

    The class coordinator is Larry Wade, 503-312-7745; contact him for any questions.

    In order to complete your registration payment must be made, preferably online when registering, but no later than 7 days before the class. Please go online and use PayPal or Visa, and if mailing a check make it payable to the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line (especially the date code at the end, i.e., 20-1) and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, c/o Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    Japanese Bowl Carving and Texturing



          Instructor- Masa Nitani



    This class is for those with some carving experience, and a decent range of carving tools, either long handled or palm.  Most importantly, you must have sharp tools, either by yourself or a friend or helper. 

    Masa has not taught for us before so the early classes will be a bit of a learning experience for him and us.  The class structure will likely evolve after the first few.  Masa mainly teaches by demo and coaching, not lecture, so you must be willing to work in this format.  We will have a video camera projecting closeups of his hands and work for all to see.

    Masa Nitani has fifty years of carving experience and is now retired, having moved to Portland in 1983 from northern Japan, where he was apprenticed for three years.  Masa made his living here doing a variety of construction and specialty restoration projects, but has done carving all along the way.

    If you have taken Chuck's Foundations class those tools should work.  Masa uses mostly Japanese derived tools, many with his own handle designs, along with a few UK western tools but we don't expect you to purchase Japanese tools, or make your own.

    His English is OK, but not great, but he communicates well.  He likes to demonstrate his techniques irrespective of any design and wants to help you learn techniques so you can apply them to your own design.  This class is expected to be a combination of demonstration and practice, but is expected to result in a finished bowl but whether that happens depends mostly on your starting skills and the time you are willing to work between sessions..

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

    COST of the class includes materials, but not the tools. The plan is to provide each student with a block of interesting Maple or Walnut 4" thick x 8" wide x 12" long for their bowl.

    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.

          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.

    Carving an Acanthus Leaf with Chuck Rinehart


    Green or White  Card not Required


    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Register your interest in taking this five hour class on carving bowls in the Japanese style


          Instructor- Masa Nitani



    Masa Nitani has fifty years of carving experience and is now retired, having moved to Portland in 1983 from northern Japan, where he was apprenticed for three years.  Masa made his living here doing a variety of construction and specialty restoration projects, but has done carving all along the way.

    The requirements for this class haven't been determined yet, but if you have taken Chuck's Foundations class those tools should work.  Masa uses mostly Japanese derived tools, many with his own handle designs, along with a few UK western tools but we don't expect you to purchase Japanese tools, or make your own.

    Masa said his teaching technique is to demonstrate a lot and lecture a little.  His English is OK, but not great, but he communicates well.  He likes to demonstrate his techniques irrespective of any design and wants to help you learn these techniques so you can apply them to your own design.  This class is expected to be a combination of demonstration and practice, but is not expected to result in a bowl or other finished project.

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

    COST of the class will likely be $75 - 100, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on the interest list.  As we pin down class details you will be notified and a new class event will be posted on the web.  At that point you will register for real.

    Tea box project is a beautiful gift

    .

    White Safety Card Required

    A useful, attractive gift is a great way to share your woodworking passion with friends and family, and this tea box is perfect for the job. Sized for a stack of tea bags, the box is also perfect for cooking salt or other small items. Better yet, it's a great way to use those beautiful scraps you’ve been hanging onto.  

    In this fun, four-hour class, each student will build a box and learn a host of invaluable lessons for future box-making, including cutting accurate miters on the table saw and miter saw, clamping miters, cutting apart a closed box to separate the lid, fitting an attractive liner, and adding keys that strengthen the joints and beautify the box. 

    Emphasis will be on jigs and setups that allow you to make multiples in plenty of time for the holidays! You’ll even learn a basic oil finish that’s just as fast and foolproof.

    Tools and material to be supplied by the Student:

    • Sanding block of some kind (I recommend the Preppin’ Weapon)
    • Sharp block plane if possible
    • Tape measure
    • Combination square
    • sharp pencil
    • If desired, a piece of attractive wood from home, at least 1/2 in. thick by 4 in. wide by 20 in. long.
    • Personal Protective Equipment (eyes, ears, nose)

    Japanese Bowl Carving and Texturing



          Instructor- Masa Nitani



    This class is for those with some carving experience, and a decent range of sturdy long handled toos.  Most importantly, you must have sharp tools, either by yourself or a friend or helper. 

    Masa has not taught for us before so the early classes will be a bit of a learning experience for him and us.  Masa mainly teaches by demo and coaching, not lecture, so you must be willing to work in this format.

    If you have taken Chuck's Foundations class a few of those tools should work.  We have some tools to borrow, and we recommend not buying any until you know for sure of what you need or want.  We have quite a few to borrow.  The inside of the bowl needs three typical gouges.  Something in the 16-25 mm width in the #8/9/10/11 sweep to hog out a lot of the inside of the bowl.  Then something in the #5/6 sweep with 30-40 mm width to smooth out the inside surface and something in the #7/20 lonig bent style to tackle the inside bottom. The outside of the bowl and feel will typically use a wider flatter gouge, even a #1 25-40 mm, and a few smaller gouges for detail work.

    Masa's English is OK, but not great, but he communicates well.  He likes to demonstrate his techniques irrespective of any design and wants to help you learn techniques so you can apply them to your own design.  The class is mostly hands on.

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

    COST of the class includes materials, but not the tools. The plan is to provide each student with a block of interesting Walnut 4" thick x 8" square for their bowl.

    Things to Consider Before You Start A Project

    Instructor: Chip Webster


    A White Card is NOT Required

    This is an introduction seminar in finishing.  Students will learn why a finish is applied, a summary of several types of finishes commonly used in making furniture, and the shop environment, tools and equipment used to produce the desired finish. Safety will be addressed.

    Students will be exposed to the concept of “Think finish first”, the questions that should be answered before starting a project. We will learn techniques for surface preparation of stock to accept a finish, types and use of lighting to detect surface imperfections and inspect coverage and aid in color application, and the use of solvents to examine the expected color and look of a board prior to finishing as well as to detect surface imperfections. We’ll explore correcting surface preparation issues and blotching. And we'll be exposed to the concept of  “finishing the finish”. Beginners are welcome.


    Cost of class: $65/ Free to be on the interest list

    Eastern Joinery Seminar: Theory and Application

    with


    A White Card is Not Required   



    As part of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers program of presenting international masters of our craft, we are pleased to bring Taeho Kwon back to Portland for 2020. 

    Taeho Kwon visited our Guild in April, 2019. He presented his journey into his discovery of how Eastern timber frame joinery is applied to solve specific construction issues and the techniques to successfully execute his designs. He also taught a workshop to build the coffee table/sitting bench shown in the image during his visit to Portland. His presentation and workshop were met with rave reviews.

    Taeho Kwon attended East Carolina University and majored in Commercial Arts, studying Interior Design. His goal was to construct his own designs instead of hiring other builders. To achieve this, he applied for jobs outside of the field and started working on fine carpentry. He also learned everything he could from framing to exteriors, anything that would improve his skills to build his designs. After learning and practicing for 12 years, he decided to take a step further and extend his understanding of joinery. He then traveled to Korea and attended The School of Traditional Korean Architecture, earning a Certificate of Maintenance and Restoration for Korean traditional buildings. He learned to make Buddhist Temples and a “King's Palace.” Since then, he has spent numerous years gaining experience on the restoration and new construction of traditional Korean houses, as well as temple buildings. He focused on temples because he wanted to improve his knowledge of joinery and the secrets behind making it last for thousands of years. In a temple or a King's Palace building, there are about three times more types of joints involved than in fine furniture building. He has been utilizing this advanced joinery in his own furniture design. This seminar is a lecture and demonstration on how Eastern joinery is used to solve specific problems in the construction of buildings and furniture to last hundreds, even thousands, of years. Timber frame and furniture joinery will be discussed.

    Lunch will be provided.

    Because of the expected popularity of this seminar, early registration is strongly encouraged. Register now for a discount. Early registration is $49 until midnight April 19, 2020. Standard registration is $55 beginning April 20, 2020.

    Build this A. Lewis Inspired Shop Stool with Taeho Kwon


              



    White Shop Safety Card Required



    This class is called Shop Stool, however, the exposed joinery and aesthetically curved and tapered lines will shine in any place at your home or office.

    The design of this stool was based on, and inspired by, Aled Lewis, a furniture designer and maker who works both in America and the United Kingdom. Taeho liked the original so much, that he decided to duplicate Aled’s stool design for his own use at his shop, but he realized every woodworker deserved a nice stool to go with their work bench, and that this stool would make a perfect weekend workshop. Taeho has done a few minor facelifts to the original design to make it suitable for a weekend class and, as in all of Taeho’s classes; he came up with jigs to complete this stool in 2 days. Being a 2 day class, this workshop will be more of a project workshop than an educational workshop.

    This class is suitable for advanced beginners with some shop skills. 

    Because of the expected popularity of this workshop, early registration is strongly encouraged. Register now for a discount. Early registration for the stool workshop only is $525 until midnight April 19, 2020. Standard registration is $575 beginning April 20, 2020.

    For those who are interested in making their own set of jigs, a third day is available before the stool workshop for an additional fee $285.00. You must register and pay separately for this option.

    Lunch will be included. A tool list will be provided well in advance to help students prepare for this workshop.

    In order to complete your registration payment must be made within 7 days of registration. Please go online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers.

    Timber Frame Joinery Techniques for Furniture Makers with Taeho Kwon


             



    White Card Required

    This class is for those who want to acquire a deeper understanding of Eastern Joinery. It will cover much of the joinery that is used in Eastern timber frame buildings, such as the Buddhist Temple and the King’s Palace. Whether you are a timber framer or a woodworker whose only focus is furniture making, this class will help you to construct the best furniture possible.

    During Taeho’s apprenticeship years, he focused more on building temples than furniture because he wanted to improve his knowledge of joinery and the secrets behind making joints last for thousands of years. In a temple or the King’s Palace building, there are about three times more types of joints involved than in fine furniture building. His plan has been to utilize this advanced joinery in his own furniture design, which is represented in his Nakashima inspired Sitting Bench/Coffee Table and the Entry Table creation.

    Students will learn to construct varieties of joints, which will interlock together and become one beautiful structure for future reference or display amongst their woodworking collections.

    There are no prerequisites to take this class; you do not need to take Joinery 1.

    If you have an interest in utilizing traditional timber frame joinery in your own furniture designs, and improving your skills and knowledge in joinery, this class is for you.

     You will learn:

    • How timber frame joinery works
    • Secrets to Building structures that withstand earthquakes and hurricanes
    • Understanding the movement of wood
    • Secrets to expanding the life of the wood in order to last thousands of years
    • To make  a variety of traditional joints using both hand tools and power tools
    • How old western and eastern craftsmen were associated and how their timeless work is relevant to understanding wood movement and techniques.

    Lunch will be provided.Taeho will provide jigs for the joinery. A tool list will be provided well in advance to help students prepare for this workshop.

    The cost of this 6 day workshop with early registration is $995, available through midnight April 19, 2020. Late registration is $1165 beginning April 20, 2020.

    Please direct any questions to Chip Webster at jdwebster3@comcast.net.

    A special cancellation policy applies to this class; Thirty (30) days advance notice is required to cancel in order to get a refund, unless your slot is filled by someone else. However, cancellation within seven days forfeits all payment.

    We would appreciate it if you'd pay online. If you would like to pay by check contact Julie Niemeyer at 503-591-9360 immediately. Payment must be made within 7 days of registration.

    Make a Kumiko Box with Mike Pekovich


          


    White Card Required

    Are you looking to spice up your work in a novel way? Then you need to sharpen your chisels and try your hand at kumiko. This Japanese latticework technique is traditionally found on shoji screens, but is making its way into contemporary furniture and boxes. The elegant geometric patterns of kumiko begin with a simple half-lap grid. From there each square is filled out with small, precisely beveled parts until the pattern emerges. 

    In this weekend class you'll start by building an elegant mitered box, where you'll learn how to work safely and accurately with small parts at the table saw. After that, you'll make a kumiko panel by hand to finish off the box. During the process, you'll learn the basics of kumiko construction that you can put to use on future projects as well. 

    A White Card is required for this workshop. If you do not have a Green Card or a Machine Skills sticker for the table saw and are not a regular user of the table saw, it is highly recommended that you take the Table Saw Machine Skills class in advance of this workshop.

    A set of kumiko bevel blocks will be available for each student to use during class at no charge. Additional sets will be available for purchase if desired.

    Because of the expected popularity of this workshop, early registration is strongly encouraged. Register now for a discount. Early registration is $575 until midnight September 19, 2020. Late registration is $615 beginning September 20, 2020.

    A different cancellation policy applies to this class.  Thirty (30) days advance notice is required to cancel in order to get a refund unless your slot is filled by someone else. However, cancellation within seven days forfeits payment.


    Lunch will be provided.
