NL-2 The Woodworker’s Toolkit (8 hours)

Instructor:  Jeff Zens

The Woodworker’s Toolkit offers students a chance to discuss, examine and understand the tools and equipment required to move successfully through the Next Level series.  This class is placed early in the Next Level series to give students the important opportunity to look at and discuss the various tools that will be required for subsequent classes. It’s the second session in the series, because, next to wood, your tool selections are a critical ingredient for high-quality work.  

In the larger sense, this class will provide you with ideas about equipping a functional woodworking shop, especially one where hand tools play an important role. We will discuss cost, and how that differs from price.  We’ll talk about used tool options, and their cost in money and time.

Since this is mostly a discussion-type class, you won’t need to bring anything more than paper and pen for note taking. However, if you have a particular tool that you would like to discuss, or one that you are considering purchasing, feel free to bring it along.  We will do as much “show-and-tell” as time permits. As with all Next Level classes, please be prepared with questions about your equipment needs and desires.

All Guild members are welcome to attend this class, but registration preference will be given to members working through the Next Level series.  There are no prerequisites. At least six participants are needed to conduct this class. Lunch will be provided.

If you have questions, please contact class coordinator Rick Alexander, by phone 707 287-4200 or email (enter Guild NL2 in subject line.)

Please pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. If paying by check please contact the course coordinator.
