Tools and Woodworking: the Basic Basics with Bill Thomas

In this introduction to tools and woodworking we’ll begin with the most basic skills and concepts, and then build on that foundation. If you’re intimidated by tools and the idea of working with your hands, don’t worry -- you can do this! We’ll meet for two sessions: Saturday and Sunday from 9-1 ish. We’ll focus on understanding and using the common hand tools needed for home repair and basic woodworking projects. We will explore what tools to buy and which ones to avoid. We’ll use simple power tools, drills and fasteners. The class will also learn to sharpen basic edge tools and discuss which wood is appropriate for your repairs and projects. We’ll also talk about glue and which one to have on hand. In the process of covering all this we’ll practice these new skills as each student builds a basic toolbox to help them organize the tools they have or will be buying. The pace in the class will be relaxed and catered to the students’ needs and questions, including time to explore ideas and particular repair and woodworking issues. If there is interest, we can build on what we learn in this class with a series of more advanced classes where we design and then build more projects.

About Amesbury, MA
Amesbury Massachusetts is a suburban community with an unusual industrial and manufacturing history. Among the most interesting of Amesbury's products were the carriages which did achieve some renown in the area.

Into the 20th century this same company made the transition by converting its production to automobile bodies. Auto body making was a major industry in the town up until the Great Depression of 1929.

Amesbury is located at the crossroads of Interstate 495 and 95 and gives the town a competitive edge for both residential and commercial development.

Amesbury is built up with rich federal period residences which the community carefully preserves as its link to its past.
