Skill - Tool - Project Development

 The Classes you find in this section represent a WIDE variety of woodworking topics. Once you have a basic set of skills with hand tools and machines,  you are going to want to explore different interests. You will find that you might like one type of woodworking and not another. Many woodworkers are exploring new areas of interest all the time. (So in one sense, you are always a beginner) 

Whether you are deepening a particular skill or trying a new woodworking technique,  this is a list of classes for those with some basic experience.

    The band saw can be one of the most versatile, accurate and safe machines in your workshop – providing it is set up and used properly.  New or even a well used 14” band saw with a ½ HP motor can be tuned to cut precision joints or re-saw flawlessly without purchasing aftermarket accessories or expensive blades. 


    Proper setup of the saw, including selecting and setting blade tension and tracking, as well as simple enhancements you can make to improve the performance of your saw will be covered in the morning. We’ll move on to technique as taught by Michael Fortune, practicing cutting to the line, cutting curves and re-sawing. A variety of useful jigs designed to be used with the band saw will be demonstrated.  Illustrations will be provided so you can make your own. A Green Card is not required for this class.

    This class is based on the band saw clinic Michael Fortune taught in 2015 and 2016 for the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Michael operates one of the most diversely equipped workshops in North America.   It includes three industrial table saws but he can’t remember the last time he ripped a piece of wood on a table saw.  Instead he prefers to use a 15” General Mfg. band saw.  He purchased this band saw in 1974, tracked the blade once with only modest tension, installed a factory fence parallel to the miter slot and has not had to adjust it in 40 years. The class will be taught at the Guild shop using the Jet 20” band saw and the Grizzly 14” band saw. The differences in the Felder band saw will be addressed.

    Materials and lunch are included. If you have questions please contact the class coordinator: Jim Spitzer (503-439-9613 or spitzerjames2@gmail.com)

    Fundamentals of Fine Craftsmanship, with Asa Christiana

    During his 15 years at Fine Woodworking, eight as its chief editor, Asa Christiana encountered every woodworking technique under the sun, and was in the unique position to see which ones work best, and which ones readers actually used. This series presents best practices for every stage in the life of a furniture project: from refining the design to choosing wood, sharpening and tuning tools, prepping stock, cutting joints, assembly and surface prep, to a foolproof finish that will work wonderfully on 98% of the projects you build.


    Attend the entire series, or pick-and choose to target the areas where you struggle


    This is the second class in the series.

        


    White Card Required


    2. Prep Materials like a Pro


    Choosing and milling lumber will make or break your projects. Learn where to find great materials, the advantages of using rough lumber, how to choose the right boards, and how to put the right grain patterns in the right places. After digging through the Guild’s lumber piles (we’ll pre-load them with good wood), we’ll mark out components for a small table and move through the milling machines, exploring best practices for maximizing yield, preventing tear out, and guaranteeing world-class accuracy throughout the build.

    This six hour class is to familiarize new carvers to the relief style and to provide some hands-on experience.

    Experienced carver Jeff Harness will be the instructor, Basswood will be provided for you to carve, with a provided pattern.

    You will need to bring the following:

    Safety carving glove (wire reinforced Kevlar)
    Tools below can be a bit wider but not narrower.  Gouges and V-tool are to be palm handles, if at all possible:

    #3 gouge  1/2" to 3/4"
    #6 gouge  3/8" to 1/2"
    #9 gouge  1/4"
    V-tool  1/4"
    Detail knife (medium length, sharp and pointy)
    Bench hook
    Note taking material

    The tools and glove can get a little expensive, so if you don't have any, consider borrowing, or getting buying advice from the class coordinator. We have several detail knives and some Kevlar gloves available to borrow, but contact the coordinator to reserve one.

    A powered honing system will be available at the class to make sure your tools are sharp.  If your tools are dull, contact the coordinator to see if he can sharpen them before the class.

    This is a one session class at the Multnomah Art Center; lunch, coffee, tea, soft drinks and carbs provided. 

    This class is intended to help you experience one of the three main styles of carving, the others being incise and in the round.  Following this class you can consider taking  Introduction to Carving in the Round (caricatures).

    For questions contact the class coordinator, Larry Wade, at lpwade@gmail.com, 503-312-7745 (cell and text).

    WAITLIST - Introduction to Carving in the Round - 17-1

    No White or Green card required.

    NOTICE:  This class will be scheduled sometime in the future once 6-8 members signup on this waitlist to show strong interest.  Signing up tells us that you are seriously interested.  It doesn't mean a class will be held on the date associated with this list.

    This one day class provides an introduction to carving in the round, using a small caricature of a sea captain as the project.  This will be a hands-on project, and whether you finish will depend on your starting skill level.

    The carving style will be what is called flat-plane caricature, popularized by a nationally well-known carver and author named Harley Refsal.  Google his name for his bio and to see a YouTube video and other references.  His best book is called Whittling Little Folks and is sold by Amazon for about $13 and is available in the public library.  The planned image will be a sea captain, a design that is unique to the instructor but in the Refsal style.


    Beginning carvers are welcome but we strongly recommend some hands-on experience.  

    Experienced carver Jeff Harness will be the instructor, Basswood will be provided for you to carve.

    You will need to bring the following:

    Safety carving glove (wire reinforced Kevlar), however if you don't have one and don't want to buy one now, we have enough for everyone.  Vet wrap to make a thumb guard will be provided but feel free to bring your own thumb guard if you want.

    Tools below can be a bit wider but not narrower.  Gouges and V-tool are preferred to be palm handles, if at all possible:

    Detail knife (medium length, pointy).  We have enough for everyone if you want to borrow for the day, but since most of the work will be done with this tool, and is a fundamental one to own, you should consider buying one.  A common version to start with is the Flexcut Detail Knife, usually available locally but also online.  Suggest buying just this knife and not the three-knife set that Flexcut promotes.

    #3 gouge  6mm or 8mm
    #9 gouge  8mm or 10mm
    V-tool  1/4" 70 degree

    Note taking material

    The tools and glove can get a bit expensive, so if you don't have any, consider borrowing, or getting buying advice from the class coordinator. We have several detail knives and some Kevlar gloves available to borrow, but contact the coordinator to reserve one.  Most of the work will be done with a knife.

    A powered stropping/honing system will be available at the class to make sure your tools are sharp.  If your tools are dull, contact the coordinator to see if he can help you sharpen them before the class.

    This is a one day class.  Lunch, coffee, tea, soft drinks and donuts provided. 

    This class is intended to help you experience one of the three main styles of carving, the others being incise and relief.

     Make a Greenwood Stool 17-1

    Instructor:  Norm Baird

    Begin with a green log of suitable species—dripping wet greenwood.  Oregon white oak works well.  With sledge & wedges, and then club & froe, split out blanks for legs and rungs.

    On the shave horse, using the drawknife, experience the sensations (sight, sound, and feel) of shaping green wood with a sharp blade.  Learn to read the wood—it will tell you how it wants to be shaved.  Refine the parts to size and shape as much as possible while green, and then put aside to dry.  For a couple of years.

    With dry parts (we will swap green for dry using a Pay-It-Forward approach) refine size, shape and surface finish with spokeshaves, then drill mortises, fit tenons, and assemble the frame.  Finish by weaving the seat from cotton Shaker tape.

    That is the centuries-old, traditional procedure for making a greenwood stool or chair.  This 4 day class will be held over 3 weeks allowing time between classes for students to practice new skills and do some work at home.  Everyone should be able to complete a stool in class.  Along the way you’ll learn to safely use the tools of the trade, local sources for suitable green wood and where to find other needed materials. 

    All materials will be supplied.  We have plenty of drawknives, spokeshaves, froes, etc. you will be welcome to use them throughout the class.  If you want to buy your own, a tool list will be provided to students who register.  But, we suggest holding-off on purchasing new tools until instructor Norm Baird shows you what to look for and shares his buying tips.   

    Don’t need a stool?  It also makes a nice foot rest or a casual side table.  And you will begin to master the skills needed to make a chair.

    Successful completion of the Guild's free Safety & Orientation session is required before the class starts; i.e., you must have a Guild White Card.   There are no other prerequisites for this class.  It is suitable for beginners and advanced woodworkers alike.  If you have questions about the course content please contact instructor Norm Baird at nbaird@toledotel.com.  If you have questions about registration and logistics, please contact class coordinator Rick Alexander, at actwo@earthlink.net (enter Guild Greenwood Stool in subject line.)

          Bench Tools Sharpening Clinic with Jeff Zens
      



    Last Sign-up Date: Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017

     

    Knowing how and when to sharpen your cutting tools is a gateway skill, a “must have” for every woodworker who aspires to fine work.  Working with sharp tools is a revelation: once you experience the safety and effectiveness of a sharp hand plane or chisel you will never look back.  Advertisements to the contrary, tools do not come to you sharp and ready to use right out of the box.  No matter where they come from, a new cutting edge can always be improved.

     

    Now you can participate in the same workshop offered to the Guild’s Next Level students without committing to the entire NL series.  In this day-long, hands-on session, Master furniture maker Jeff Zens will guide you through the theory behind creating a keen edge on your chisels and plane irons.  Quickly moving beyond theory, you will put each of the sharpening steps into practice as Jeff guides you through the process of creating an amazingly sharp edge on your hand tools.  At   the end of this hands-on workshop, you’ll go home with at least one tool ready to work for you. More importantly, you’ll have the knowledge necessary to get all of your edges into top condition and keep them working for you.

     

    This workshop is fast-paced and intense; be ready to go to work.  Bring your sharpening questions - there is always time for interesting discussion.

     

    A tool list will be sent to students upon registration.  Achieving success in this class requires that students be properly equipped, and some necessary class items might have a longer lead time.  Early registration is a good idea, because this workshop always sells out: don’t delay!

      Finally; A Hand Plane Class Designed for You, By You

     Instructor: Jeff Zens



    Here is a remarkable opportunity to design a woodworking class to meet your own, personal needs.  This class is taught by professional member and Master furniture maker Jeff Zens, and will focus solely on your hand planes and your questions about purchasing, set-up and use.

     

    After you sign up, start thinking about hand plane questions you’ve always wanted answers to, and get them to Jeff (via email, jszens@custombuiltfurniture.com) Your input will provide the shape and structure of this class.  The general framework for the class will start with the basics: what hand planes are, and what they can do for you.  We’ll chat about why there are so many sizes and shapes, and why some woodworkers own lots of them.  We can spend some time talking about maintenance, adjustment, and tuning up a used hand plane.  The choices of interesting hand plane subjects is limitless, so we’ve thrown open the final structure and direction of this class to you.

     

    We’re going to limit enrollment in this class to 12, and you must be a current Guild member to  sign up.  Don’t be surprised if a brief survey for this class shows up in your email, depending on the volume of subjects and requests submitted.  It might be necessary to prioritize so that the subjects most important to you are covered in sufficient detail. 


    If you have questions not answered here, contact the Class Coordinator, Ken Hall at

    Introduction to Project Milling

    A Hands On Class


    Instructor: Dick Rohrbaugh


    Green card required for jointer, planer & table saw.

    Milling wood to produce straight, flat and square boards is the essential first step in any woodworking project.  A well-defined process for doing that is thus one of the first things a new woodworker needs to learn.  This class will explain the process, demonstrate it, and provide hands-on experience in which participants will mill boards for themselves.  Materials for the class will be provided.

    This hands on class will cover buying wood for fine woodworking, an overview of the milling sequence, setting up the jointer, jointing the first face & edge, setting the planer, planning the second face, and an overall milling strategy.  Students should bring their personal protective equipment (ear, eye & lung protection)

    If you have any questions, please contact the class coordinator Gary Weeber at siweeb@gmail.com.

    In order to complete your registration payment must be made.Please go online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers.

    Things to Consider Before You Start A Project

    Instructor: Chip Webster

    This is an introduction seminar in finishing.  Students will learn why a finish is applied, a summary of several types of finishes commonly used in making furniture, and the shop environment, tools and equipment used to produce the desired finish. Safety will be addressed.

    Students will be exposed to the concept of “Think finish first”, the questions that should be answered before starting a project. We will learn techniques for surface preparation of stock to accept a finish, types and use of lighting to detect surface imperfections and inspect coverage and aid in color application, and the use of solvents to examine the expected color and look of a board prior to finishing as well as to detect surface imperfections. We’ll explore correcting surface preparation issues and blotching. And we'll be exposed to the concept of  “finishing the finish”. Beginners are welcome.

    Please register online.We do not require payment at this time. The class will be scheduled when we have a critical mass of registrants. At that time you will be asked to pay or chose to be be removed from the waitlist. Thank you.
