Hope Chests Series

Build and customize your own full-size hope chest in this 4 session series. This is a traditional woodworking project that utilizes many of the tools and processes frequently done in a wood shop, teaching you how to square up material, prepare for assembly, and protect for longtime use. This class is great for beginners and intermediate students who want to build on their woodworking skills while making a beautiful keepsake that can be used for many years to come.

This 4 session course begins on June 19th and continues on the following weeks, 6/26, 7/3, and 7/10. Please confirm with your schedule that you will be available to attend each session.

The non-member price includes 1 month of Wood Shop Membership ($175 value!) so you can practice what you learned and get started on your next project!

***New members must still attend our New Member Orientation within a month of the class start date before you can work in the shops. Check your receipt after purchasing for your coupon code to waive the orientation fee ($25 value!). You may take the orientation before or after this class, your membership will begin on the day you have completed both.***

This project based class covers how to glue-up material into larger boards, plane and sand to thickness, cut box joints, assemble with hardware, and finish to protect.

Planer, drum sander, jointer, table saw, dado stack, box joint jig, biscuit joiner, wood-glue, cherry or comparable hard wood, various finishes. All materials are included in the ticket price.
