Woodworking Basics – The Box

April 18, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

For almost every woodworking project knowing how to build the humble box is very important. The rabbit joint is a simple but yet versatile joint.

Just about everything you could build starts with knowing how to make a basic box. Whether you are making cabinets, drawers, bookcases, desks or beds they are all just variations of the humble box. This is a great first project if you are just getting into woodworking, and there are lots and lots of ways to make boxes with all different kinds of joinery. In this woodworking class, you will learn the simple rabbit joint method that can be used almost every time. It is quick, strong, and gives you nice square corners without a lot of fuss.

You will be leaving with your very own handmade box! Bring it back during any of the CNC or laser cutting class to personalize it even more.

This class will be the first in a series of basic woodworking classes. Each class can be attended independently as each one will teach a unique woodworking technique. Woodworking classes are kept to a minimum size to maximize each person’s time on the equipment.
