1. Measuring and marking
Before you even pick up a saw or a plane, you need to know how to measure and mark accurately and consistently. That is what we start the course with, but these skills remain important in every stage of the making process.
2. Developing competence and making components
The majority of the time you will spent practicing with two common handtools, the saw and the handplane. On the one hand, this will allow you to develop proficiency, on the other to learn to make components for your project out of rough lumber. The two things are related too of course: the more competent you become, the more efficient and effective you will be in creating components.
3. Learning about wood
You will also acquire basic knowledge about the material we work with, solid wood. You will learn about basic properties of wood and the diversity in wood types. This will allow you to better understand woodworking methods. You will also know what to pay attention to when visiting a lumberyard or wood dealer.
4. Glue and finishes
Finally, every project naturally needs to be assembled and finished at the end of the making process. For this reason, you will also learn about assembly, glues, and finishes, like oil and varnish, in this course.
