Wood Joinery for Beginners: biscuit, dowel, screw and pocket screw joints

Wood joinery is one of the most basic concepts in woodworking. If we didn’t have the ability to join two pieces of wood together in a solid fashion, all woodworking pieces would be sculptures, carved out of a single piece of wood. However, with the many varied types of wood joinery, a woodworker has a number of different joints in his arsenal from which to choose, based on the project.

Learn and master some basic methods for connecting wood with Richard through this two-hour-and-half long session.

If this training session is full, please sign up for the waitlist to be notified if a spot opens up in this session, or when another training session is scheduled.
