This is a new idea in woodworking classes that involves the power of the Internet.
In this class you’re invited into the 360 WoodWorking shop for a weekend class to discuss and work through any difficult parts of the project. As you move back to your shop, only you and other classmates have access to an online course specifically developed to lead you to completion of the project. Plus, each week (for the following 6 weeks) we’ll meet online to discuss how your project is progressing, examine techniques and share thoughts as we move toward the finish stage.
During the course, you’ll make each of the inlays for the project, including the oval and round Federal-period fans, corner fans and rope stringing used around the case and top. You’ll cut and inlay the cove-designed lid after learning the tips and secrets for constructing the box. Inside, which is usually divided into two compartments each with a custom-fitted top that exhibits inlay matching that used on the exterior of the caddy, is left for your own design. Expect to delve deeply into veneer and veneer work as you build your tea caddy.
Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through 360 Woodworking, or you can bring your lumber with you to class.
Attendees are responsible for safety glasses and hearing protection, combination or machinist square, bench chisels, mallet, dovetail saw, marking gauge and tape measure or folding rule, if you have them. If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic. We have plenty of tools for your use in class.
