Woodworking Courses

Scroll Saw Courses are a great way to learn more about your scroll saw and scrolling. I am offering Scroll Saw Classes at the locations listed below. My classes are very hands on. All aspects of scrolling will be covered, blade type and size for various material, how fast to cut for various types and thicknesses of materials, how to tension the blades and safe scrolling practices.

10 different "take home" projects cover the different materials and keep everyone busy. Tole or country painters will learn how to cut out their projects with smooth edges and no splintering on the bottom of the cut. This technique will save hours of sanding, preparing your projects for painting. This is a good class for the true beginner. Even if you have never turned on a saw, you can still take the class. Its better if you have your own saw but if not I have spare saws I can make available, free of charge, for people to use.

This is a fun class that will get you scrolling and enjoying this very versatile tool. I am also offering two levels of classes in Intarsia.

Intarsia Beginners Class covers the basics of Intarsia. Everyone will complete "take home" projects and gain a good understanding of this fascinating craft / art form. Its helpful to have taken the beginner Scroll Saw Class or have some experience cutting with a scroll saw.

Advanced Intarsia Class includes a more complex "take home" project that will cover all aspects of Intarsia. Raising and lowering, shaping and sanding. Tips on how to get the pieces to fit together. After this class you will be well on your way and able to tackle almost any Intarsia pattern. All my classes are hands on you will be actually working with the tools and doing rather than listening to a instructor talk. I can then help everyone on a individual basis. Its helpful to have taken the Beginner Intarsia Class or have some experience with Intarsia.

Band Saw Seminars will be offered at a number of locations. A discussion on how to tune up your band saw and get the most out of this versatile tool. Also a demo on band saw boxes. I will show how to make a duck box. A demo on how to make a Cabriole leg. Bring lots of questions. Your participation is welcome!

Woodworking Shows

Wood shows are few and far between these days. They were great events in their day, but the interest isn't there anymore I guess. If I do decide to attend a wood show or Scroll saw picnic I will post it here and on my Home page.
