    NL12 Mortise and Tenon Joints - Focused Work

    Instructor:  Dennis Rodrigues

    The mortise and tenon (M&T) joint is fundamental to many furniture applications, notably tables and chairs, but also cabinetry.  When we think of arts and crafts, mission, Shaker and related styles we almost automatically visualize an exposed mortise and tenon joint.  However, the mortise and tenon joint is much older than these relatively recent styles and lends itself to a wide variety of traditional and modern designs.  It is a joint every furniture maker should have in his or her repertoire!

    The major focus areas for this class are:

    • Joint design; aesthetics and strength of hidden and exposed M&T;
    • Requirements and techniques for long-lasting joinery;
    • Applications for mortise and tenon joints;
    • Layout, marking and measuring for M&T joints
    • Creating the mortise using chisels and mallets (hand work), drill press and chisels (combination techniques), mortising machines (machine work), router and template (machine work); 
    • Creating the tenon using table saw and band saw (machine work), tenon saw (hand work); loose tenon joints (machine work)
    • Fitting joints, shoulder plane and router plane techniques (hand work)
    • Gluing up joints to minimize squeeze-out
    • Tusked and wedged tenon techniques

    This class is part of the 17 class Guild series Woodworking at the Next Level for developing and refining your hand tool and design skills.  There are prerequisites for the class.  A list of required tools and materials is provided to registrants.  More details about the series are available on the Guild website at this link: Woodworking at the Next Level

    If you are interested in future offerings of the  series please register for the WAIT LIST-Woodworking at the Next Level in the Guild Education Calendar. 

    If you have questions, please contact class coordinator Rick Alexander, at actwo@earthlink.net (enter Guild Next Level in subject line.)

    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:

    Relief Carving 101 - 17-1

    If this class is full, put yourself on the WAITLIST or send an email to lpwade@gmail.com to get added.

    These two four hour classes are to familiarize new carvers to the relief style and to get 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 glove (wire reinforced Kevlar)
    Tools below can be a bit wider but no 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 (sharp and pointy)
    Bench hook
    Note taking material

    These gouges 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 classes staffed by an assistant to make sure your tools are sharp.  Come 30 minutes early for sharpening assistance if possible.

    This is a two session class, the first on Saturday April 8 and the second two weeks later, on Saturday April 22.  The first class will be at the Guild shop but the second one will be nearby at the Multnomah Art Center Cottage 5 (their wood shop).  Both classes are 9:00 - 1:00, no lunch, but coffee, tea, soft drinks and donuts at the beginning. 

    These two classes are intended to help you experience one of the main styles of carving.  If there is enough interest we will schedule more classes, and point you to alternative places to build skills.

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

    Surface Preparation

    Instructor: Chip Webster


    It must be a law: your finish will highlight and magnify every defect in your wood. The time invested to properly prepare the surface of the boards in your project will pay dividends in the result. Time will be devoted to both sanding and the use of cutting tools (hand planes and card scrapers) to prepare the surface of sample boards. We will compare the two methods side by side and apply a seal coat to view the results. Issues such as dents, gouges, holes and glue spots will be addressed. A principal goal is to help students set expectations.

    All skill levels are welcome. A Green Card is not required. Lunch is included.

    Finish materials are included. Students are requested to bring sample boards, a tuned hand plane and card scraper if they have them, and their favorite sander. Instructions for preparation will be provided in advance. If you have questions please contact Chip Webster at 503-780-8812 or jdwebster3@comcast.net.

    Please register online and pay using PayPal or by check made to the order of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers. Reference the class title on the memo line and mail it to: GOOW-Registrar, C/O Julie Niemeyer, 20282 SW Inglis Drive, Beaverton, OR 97007

    NL-13 Dovetail Joints – Focused Work

    Instructor:  Dennis Rodrigues

    Dovetail joints are a centuries old joinery technique that we all admire when we find it hidden away in a drawer in fine furniture.  It has other applications as well.  Done properly, it often has no need of glue or other fasteners-adding to its awe and mystery.  

    In this day-long, hands-on workshop, students will be introduced to the layout and joinery techniques of hand-cut dovetail joints.  Each technique will be explained and demonstrated by the instructor and practiced by the students..  We will work on both through dovetails and half-blind dovetails.

    The class is designed so that students spend as much time as possible practicing these techniques with the instructor’s assistance and coaching.  Stock for this exercise must be prepared in advance, to the specifications provided to students.

    There will be an outside-of-class assignment given to students that will refine sawing and seeing skills through repetition and developed muscle memory. 

    This class is part of the 17 class Guild series Woodworking at the Next Level for developing and refining your hand tool and design skills.  There are prerequisites for the class.  A list of required tools and materials is provided to registrants.  More details about the series are available on the Guild website at this link: Woodworking at the Next Level

     Japanese Woodworking Class
    with
    Alexander Anderson

    One aspect of Japanese woodworking is the use of beautiful, elaborate joints to join the wood members. This class will focus on gaining the skills to be able to build custom and unique joinery for use in your own projects.
    This class requires some previous experience working with wood and with tools. Not a lot, but some would definitely help. This is an intense class that will push limits of tool use and precision woodworking. 
    Power tool use and instruction on, but not limited to, jointer, planer, table saw, drill press, routers, sliding table saw, and band saw. 
    Hand tool use and instruction on layout tools, chisels, bench planes, joinery planes, and saws. 
    Sharpening of chisels and planes will be an important part of this work and there will be a lesson in sharpening early in the class. 
    This class goes through the process of milling rough wood into usable materials for your project. Then the focus is on using power tools and hand tools in conjunction with each other to lay out and cut the joinery. 
    In the four days and two evening classes at Alexander's shop you will have the hands on instruction and guidance from a master joiner. There is work done in class and then instructions for work to be done on your own between classes. Using your own shop or the Guild shop* helps get you started honing in on how to keep moving forward with woodworking after the class has ended. 
    The class will focus on the construction of Japanese Sawhorses made from locally grown Oregon white ash. The construction of the sawhorses will demonstrate the use of beautiful and functional joinery. Techniques that will be useful in many future projects.
    The stout design of these sawhorses are able to resist racking forces and support a great deal of weight. With the use of beams, they provide a level, sturdy base for gluing up a project, as well as an auxiliary workbench.

    Frame and panel construction techniques solve a lot of woodworking problems.  We all know that wood moves seasonally.  Large sections of wood move more than smaller sections. This movement must be planned for and accommodated in your furniture design.  Setting a panel (the large section of wood) into a frame that has room for expansion built right into the design is a useful solution.

    In this workshop, students will design and then build a frame and panel door, which could become a component of a cabinet  Other applications for frame and panel construction will be discussed in depth.

    This class is part of the 17 class Guild series Woodworking at the Next Level for developing and refining your hand tool and design skills.  There are prerequisites for the class.  A list of required tools and materials is provided to registrants.  More details about the series are available on the Guild website at this link: Woodworking at the Next Level

    Think Finish Before You Start Your Project 17-1

    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”. All skill levels are welcome.

    This class is similar in content to the Finishing class given in the Basics of Fine Woodworking series.

    NL-15 Leg and Apron Construction:  Build a Stool

    Instructor:  Jeff Zens

    Break out the saws, chisels, and drill bits! This class is going to hone your techniques for creating mortise and tenon (M&T) joints.  The learning context is leg-and apron construction, and the project is a small four-legged stool.  So that we cover a broad range of techniques, each corner of the stool will be joined with M&T joints created with different construction techniques.

    We’re going to chop mortises by hand, saw tenons by hand, use a drill press, make a router template and loose tenons - lots of work, lots of practice, and much skill building.

    We’re also going to demonstrate one of many techniques for creating upholstered seats, and the “homework” for this project will be to fabricate and upholster a slip seat for your stool.

    This class is part of the 17 class Guild series Woodworking at the Next Level for developing and refining your hand tool and design skills.  There are prerequisites for the class.  A list of required tools and materials is provided to registrants.  More details about the series are available on the Guild website at this link: Woodworking at the Next Level

    Woodworking at the Next Level WAIT LIST

    This is a place to register (free) for the waiting list for the next offering of Woodworking at the Next Level. The next series will begin in January 2018 followed by one in January 2020.

    Instructors;  Jeff Zens and Dennis Rodrigues

    Woodworking at the Next Level is a series of 17 classes over nearly two years.  It is a logical next step for those who have basic woodworking skills and experience.  While there is a focus early in the series on hand tools, students will also gain experience and knowledge of machine tools and an appreciation for the synergy between hand tools and machine work.  

    The series will emphasize safe woodworking technique, reinforced, and rewarded, by hands-on projects such as making tools, guides and fixtures useful for your own workshop and furniture components and finished pieces.  It will integrate fundamental concepts of design and the interplay of wood, craftsmanship, utility and aesthetics.

    Classes are limited in size to ensure ample opportunity for individual coaching.  The classes are designed to build on one another and most have specific prerequisites.

    Generally, the individual classes are one Saturday a month during the school year.  No classes are held in July, August and December.  Most classes are 8 hours, two are 4 hours and the final class is two 8 hour sessions. Lunch is included in the tuition for the 8 hour classes.

    NL-16 Carcase Construction--Build a Finger-Joint Box with Lid

    Instructor:  Dennis Rodrigues

    A carcase--or casework--is essentially a box and is a fundamental building block in furniture making.  There are many good ways to put a box together, and your choice of joinery is largely dependent on the final design and intended use of the piece. This hands-on workshop will concentrate on one technique to assemble boxes: the finger joint.

    Class will begin with a demonstration of the techniques involved in designing a finger joint jig for your table saw.  We will go over adjustments to make the fit just right, and then use the jig to create a box.

    The instructor will also demonstrate an easy technique for creating finger joints on the band saw. Successfully completing this class will add one more design option to your joinery arsenal.

    The box will be grooved for a bottom, assembled, and then students will use an easy technique to create a frame-and-panel lid, which will be fit to the opening.  By the end of the session, you will have a lovely keepsake box for your mantle or shop.

    This class is part of the 17 class Guild series Woodworking at the Next Level for developing and refining your hand tool and design skills.  There are prerequisites for the class.  A list of required tools and materials is provided to registrants.  More details about the series are available on the Guild website at this link: Woodworking at the Next Level

    NL-17 Final Project: Build a Wall Cabinet with Drawers

    Instructors:  Jeff Zens and Dennis Rodrigues

    This class is the culmination of two years of work.  It pulls together the design skills and construction techniques students have acquired during the two years of work in class and on their own outside of class on homework assignments. 

    Under general direction of the instructors, students will design and build a wall hung cabinet with door(s) and drawers.  To be successful the design work must have begun months prior to the final two classes.  Instructors will have been available during prerequisite classes to coach and offer advice.

    During the NL17 classes, October 14 and October 28, instructors, classmates and the student will review the design and help with any final problem solving and advice.    

    Students will be responsible for all phases of this project, including design, stock selection, milling, joinery and finishing.  This class is reserved exclusively for students who have successfully completed all of the preceding Next Level course work.  

    With a final design in hand students will construct and finish the cabinet over the following two months working on their own.  The instructors remain available for consultation during this time.  After completion, students will showcase their work at a Guild meeting.

    This class is part of the 17 class Guild series Woodworking at the Next Level for developing and refining your hand tool and design skills.  There are prerequisites for the class.  A list of required tools and materials is provided to registrants.  More details about the series are available on the Guild website at this link: Woodworking at the Next Level
