lidded box

Make it and Take it

OK! The holidays are over, and it is time to get back to woodworking.

Bill McCracken will conduct a class on how to build a simple lidded box on Jan 24, 2015 starting at 9:30 am. It will go until we are done (a few hours at most).

This class will teach how to make a miter joint, as well as a decorative contrasting key to reinforce the corners. This will be a hands-on class that will give you experience with the table saw, sander, jointer and router.

In the end, you will take your box home!

How much?  For members of NCCW=free!  Members of the public, $20, payable at the beginning of the class. Class size is limited to ten.
