Guild of Oregon Woodworkers

7634 SW 34th Avenue Portland, OR 97219

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.

    GARRETT HACK:  PRECISION WITH HAND TOOLS

    This event is sold out! Don't hesitate to put your name on the Waitlist.

    A White Card IS Required

          

    As part of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers program of presenting international masters of our craft, we are pleased to bring Garrett Hack to Portland. Garrett Hack has served as a contributing editor at Fine Woodworking magazine and has contributed dozens of articles to that publication for over a quarter century. He is the author of The Handplane Book and Classic Hand Tools. His own unique style combines elements of Shaker and Federal forms with whimsical elements executed to perfection. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Home Furniture, and New Hampshire Home.

    This class is available for registration December 1, 2017.

    This is a 3 day hands on core class to ramp up your hand tools skills, to experiment with some design ideas, and to have lots of fun. We will practice typical furniture making skills — flattening boards to polished smoothness, jointing two edges to an invisible glue joint, fitting joints, fairing curves, shaping and chamfering edges, and others — as we build fun little splayed leg tables. Discussion ranges from tuning a wide variety of planes, marking tools, chisels and saws, to techniques to using them efficiently.

    ADVANCE PREPARATION OF MATERIALS IS NECESSARY FOR THIS CLASS. A list of these materials and milling instructions, as well as the tools you’ll need, will be sent to registrants immediately upon payment of class fees.

    The time allotment for this class does not allow for milling material during class. Materials are not included in the class fee and are estimated to be approximately $120 depending on the species andquality of the material selected by the student.

    Lunch will be provided.

    Feel free to direct questions to class coordinator Jeff Zens at jeffzens@custombuiltfurniture.com.

    Please note that your registration for this class is not complete until the class registration fee is received by the registrar.  You can pay online using PayPal, or by check made payable to the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers.  Reference the class title and number on the memo line and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007.

    Simple, Solid Workbench for Beginners and Beyond

    with Asa Christiana

    White Card Required

    Fundamentals of Fine Craftsmanship with Asa Christiana

    During his 15 years at Fine Woodworking, eight as its chief editor, Asa Christiana encountered every woodworking technique under the sun, and was in the unique position to see which ones work best, and which ones readers actually used. This series presents best practices for every stage in the life of a furniture project: from refining the design to choosing wood, sharpening and tuning tools, prepping stock, cutting joints, assembly and surface prep, to a foolproof finish that will work wonderfully on 98% of the projects you build.

    Attend the entire series, or pick-and choose to target the areas where you struggle. This is the fifth class in the series.


    No matter what level of woodworker you are, you need a strong, flat surface to work on, with a solid woodworking vise for holding work vertically. While there is nothing wrong with attempting a massive, traditional workbench a la Tage Frid or André Roubo, those big benches are brutal to build, especially for beginners.

    In this all-day class, former Fine Woodworking editor Asa Christiana will help woodworkers of all levels build the simple but very solid workbench he presented in his award-winning video series, Getting Started in Woodworking. In fact, he still uses a version of this bench today in his Portland shop.

    Using basic tools, absolutely anyone can build this bench. The base is made from kiln-dried Doug fir construction lumber, connected with a simple bolt system, while the top is a double-layer of MDF with a bolt-on vise attached. 

    Our goal is to have every attendee go home with a workbench, along with simple instructions on how to mount a vise and drill dog holes in the top. There will be lots of teamwork, and we’ll all be good friends by the end of the day.

    All materials will be supplied except a vise. The instructor will provide guidance on the type of vise to purchase as well as demonstrate installing the vise. Lunch will be provided.

    If you have questions about this class, contact the class coordinator, Gary Weeber at siweeb@gmail.com or 503-680-3827.

    In order to complete your registration, payment must be made within 7 days on registering .Please go online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    Sliding Table Saw Skills

    Instructor: Alexander Anderson

    Note: A Green Card for Core Tools is required for this class.  

    A significant Guild shop tool available for use by qualified members is the Sliding Table Saw. It excels at creating a straight line reference and making parts out of sheet goods.  If you feel that you interested in using this saw, then this class is for you.

    We will discuss the best practices for the operation of the Sliding Table Saw, then we will demonstrate these safe practices and help you practice them in this class. The small class size will allow plenty of time to ask questions and provide individual attention. By the end of the class you will feel more comfortable in using this machine. Materials will be provided.

    This class is designed to help you add Green Card Certification on this machine.

    A Shop Attendant needs to be an intermediate woodworker and is expected to work at least one shift a month, plus attend the monthly SA meeting.

    If a member needs a refresher on a certain group of machines, they can sit in on a class for free, provided they have previously taken the class.

    A minimum of 1 students is required to conduct this class. Please contact Doug Drake at dougdrakedesign@gmail.com with questions.

    Please register online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    Design Boot Camp:

    Finding Your Voice


          Instructor: Kelly Parker          



    White Card Required


    All experience levels are welcome.

    Take your work to the next level by building confidence in your design skills.  In this 2-day class Kelly will encourage students to think outside of their comfort zone to come up with truly unique designs.  We will focus on a simple form, in this case a small table, but talk about how to extend the principles to other forms. You will learn a multi-step design process which involves sketching, making models and doing full-sized mockups.  After sketching initial ideas you will learn how to make quarter-sized models using foam core, corrugate, rigid foam, MDF or whatever material is appropriate for visualizing their idea in 3D.  As the class progresses you will also build mockups and/or prototypes of their designs.  We will also do mini-design explorations for each of the table’s main components: the top, legs, sub-top or aprons.  As time allows we will discuss construction techniques for each of the tables as well as the potential jigs that would be helpful for construction.  By the end of the class you  will leave with several table designs and confidence in their design skills.

    Kelly Parker is a designer and maker of contemporary studio furniture and sculpture.  After graduating with a degree in Biochemistry she worked in the corporate world for 18 years before taking a rather circuitous route into art.  In 2009 she shucked the safety of the corporate world and decided to make her living as a woodworker.  She has taken numerous design and technique classes at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center and Marc Adams School of Woodworking where she is currently working on her Michael Fortune Fellowship. She has been awarded a professional development grant from the Furniture Society, was the first recipient of a professional development grant awarded by the Krenov Foundation and was recently awarded Best in Show at the biennial chair exhibition sponsored by American Craft Today, hosted by The Bascom Gallery in North Carolina. Her work has been featured in Fine Woodworking, Australian Wood Review, and Rooted: Creating a Sense of Place: Contemporary Studio Furniture.  Kelly’s work often incorporates other materials such as metal, glass and acrylic.  She is a passionate advocate for the craft and enjoys sharing her knowledge with others.

    Materials and lunch will be provided.

    Shaping Clinic

    Creating Identical Compound Curve Parts

    Instructor: Kelly Parker

              



    White Card Required



    This 1-day hands-on clinic focuses on how to produce identically shaped compound curve parts, typically legs.  Kelly’s work features parts that are heavily shaped and she will teach how to easily create identical parts.  You will learn how to create templates for the front, side, top and bottom of a part.  These templates will be traced onto a rectangular 'blank' in order to start to visualize a shaped part.  Kelly will show how to rough out parts using the band saw, jointer and router table, then refine parts using a variety of rasps, profiled card scrapers and profiled sanding blocks as she shows how to work to layout lines.  You will have the opportunity to practice these techniques as they create a shaped part using the templates provided.  If time allows students will be encouraged to design a leg and fabricate the necessary templates to create it.

    Building Confidence for the Beginning Woodworker


    Instructor: Kelly Parker

              


    White Card Required



    This class is for beginning woodworkers.

    In this 3-day class students will learn the basics of solid wood construction, joinery and finishing while constructing a unique wall mirror.  These skills and techniques can then be applied to your next project. While this class will have more focus on basic woodworking skills for the beginning woodworker, there will be plenty if knowledge to take away from this class even for a more experienced woodworker (such as inlay, jig construction, carved textures and finishes).

    Kelly loves to teach people how to use power tools - safety will be her focus as students learn how to use many common shop tools, including the band saw, miter saw, drill press and router table.  You will learn to use several types of jigs throughout the project.  Additionally, you will learn how to fabricate simple dowel jigs that will allow them to create joints that are both functional and decorative.  Spontaneous learning opportunities will ensure that you learn basic problem-solving skills that will be useful as they work on future projects.  Each student will be encouraged to embellish their project with pyrography (wood burning), carved textures, inlay, application of color, etc., so that the mirror created is reflective of each student’s own unique style.  The class will also learn strategies for successful glue-ups and discuss simple finishing techniques.  By the end of the class each person will have a unique wall mirror and a new-found confidence in their woodworking skills!

    Classical Carving with Chuck Rinehart 18-2

    A White Card is Not Required

    If this class is full, please add yourself to the Waitlist so we can try to schedule another sequence, or notify you if a slot opens up in this one.

    Chuck Rinehart has been woodworking for 60 years and the last 30 have included an extensive background in Classical Carving.  This class sequence will be a hands-on opportunity to be guided by an expert.  Chuck has taught this class in Rochester, NY before moving to Portland in 2017.

    The class is limited to six students because there is a lot of personal supervision and limited bench space.

    This class requires a rather extensive investment in specific carving tools, and a detailed list will be emailed to registrants.  Chuck has arranged a really good deal from Woodcarvers Supply in Florida for a complete kit for those who need a new set that will cost about $250-300 for 19 tools, a mallet and tool roll.  However, most students have some tools and need to buy ones that are missing, and those prices and sources will vary.  The four hours per session will give you time to carve and experience a variety of techniques.  Most of the class is you carving, with some demonstrations.

    A two hour Orientation Session will be scheduled (either April 24th or May 5th at 1:00 PM) several weeks before the class to discuss the required tools and sharpening and answer questions.

    The class will be held in five sessions at the Guild Shop, because we need the stable benches that can be raised up to 39".  In addition a make-up session is scheduled for June 29th for those who had to miss an earlier one.  Sessions are always on Tuesdays with those in May from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM and those in June from 1:00 to 5:00 PM.  You will be expected to do carving between sessions.  Three projects are planned, and they get progressively harder, but they will expose you to a wide variety of tools and techniques.  The first one is known as a Heraldic Lion on White Oak using a v-tool and mallet, with a few gouges later to add some relief.  The next two are variations of an Acanthus leaf, one in Basswood, the other in a different wood.

    A paperback copy (used, out of print) book will be given to each student.  This will be the reference "textbook" we will use, called Woodcarving, The Beginners Guide by William Wheeler and Charles Hayward.

    Students should plan to bring a snack; lunch will not be provided, but there will be drinks.

    There will be two class coordinators.  Initially it is Larry Wade, 503-312-7745 (text and cell), lpwade@gmail.com, and after the class is established another person will be designated.  For now contact Larry for any questions.

    In order to complete your registration payment must be made quickly, preferably online when registering, but no later than 7 days. Please go online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line (especially the date code at the end, 18-2) and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    NL-7 Machine Maintenance and Set-up 18-1

    INSTRUCTOR:  Jeff Zens         


    Green Card is Required


    This class is part of the Woodworking at the Next Level series, open only to Next Level students.

    This class examines table saws, jointers, thickness planers and band saws. The class focus is to develop the basic understanding of maintenance requirements for these tools, yielding best results and safest operation.  Because models and specifications differ from one brand to another, students will need to take the lessons learned in this class and apply them to the particular machines in use in their own shops. The instructor will address as many brand-specific issues as possible, but may not be familiar with your individual machine.

    Major areas of discussion:

    •Set up and use a band saw: proper blade selection for different cutting operations; accurate guide adjustment, tension the blade; folding and unfolding blades.

    •Set up and use a jointer: knife changing procedures, tools and equipment; in-feed and out-feed table alignment; fence adjustment

    •Set up and use a thickness planer: knife changes; in-feed and out-feed roller adjustments; table parallelism adjustments.

    •Set up and use a table saw: table (miter gauge slot) adjustments; safe fence adjustments; tilt stop adjustments; cleaning and maintenance; blade selection and installation.

    If you have questions, please contact class coordinator, Leslie Kantor at email lekan59@comcast.net (enter Guild NL in subject line.)

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