You will also learn about techniques that can save a lot of time or simultaneous work that can save you from overexerting when you make your projects. This course is ideal for beginners as it starts from the beginning and works its way up to an advanced level.

Following a tailor designed course, you will be guided through how to: Identify different tools and what their perfect use is. Understand about the need of health and safety in a workshop and the precautions to take to minimise risk to yourself or others. Use the tools to cut material into correct lengths.

The skills in which you will acquire in this course give you the skills that allow you to be able to work in R2D and do basic projects out of wood like cutting boards, small boxes, gift boxes and other basic two-dimensional construction projects out of wood.

Our advice

Because woodworking can be dangerous and dirty, we recommend that you wear old clothes or work clothes especially designed for the project at hand. We have all the security equipment like goggles that protect your eyes, gloves that protect your hands, and any first aid equipment in case a problem arises. For the longer courses it’s a good idea to bring lunch if you’ll be staying the day.
