Event description

Description

Running Friday at 6pm from 11 May - 13 July (10 weeks)

Teacher: Victoria Breathnach

This course introduces the safe operation of a number of woodwork machines with instruction on preparing solid wood and working with sheet materials.

Being able to machine sawmill timber to flat square stock opens up a world of possibilities to furniture makers. Sawing to size and dimensioning completes this first section.

The second section places the emphasis on sizing panels for making cabinets, bringing learners through processing of sheet material such as plywood, MDF and chipboard on the panel saw. Cabinet connecters, hinges, handles and other hardware are introduced.

Benchspace operates a machine driving licence safety system for all users of the workshop equipment. Completing this course will move participants to an Amber Badge on:
- Pillar Drill
- Surface Planer
- Thicknesser

- Mitre Saw
- Bandsaw
- Panel Saw
Learners completing this course are eligible to commence self-guided projects in our Guided Maker Sessions.

Please Note

This course is designed for learners having considerable woodwork experience. It is highly recommended that learners complete our level 2 or comparable woodwork project at a minimum.
