Woodworking

Fundamentals of Woodworking

This course covers the heritage art of woodworking at the
introductory level. Course work includes discussion on history
and trends, practice, and information to build and supply
appropriate studios. Upon completion, students are prepared
to either advance to a higher skill level or to fabricate and
market their goods. Safety glasses and hearing protection are
required. Students need wood for projects. Discussion is held
at the beginning of class about what types of wood would work
best for each student’s project and guidance is provided about
obtaining wood. The quantity and purchase amount will vary per
student and per project but will cost $50 or less. The Center for
Creative Woodworking has poplar wood for purchase. If students
prefer wood other than poplar, it may be purchased elsewhere.
Please call the instructor at 336-394-4718 for recommendations.
Some students prefer to bring in wood from other sources,
such as an old home place or a fallen tree. However, neither
Rockingham Community College staff nor the Center for
Creative Woodworking staff will cut down trees or retrieve
fallen wood from private community members. Wood obtained
from anywhere other than the CCWW must be inspected and
approved by the instructor. Class will meet during Fall Break
(week of Oct. 14). $20 supply fee included.
