Box Making

Date:  September 22, 2018
Location:  Cottage 5, Multnomah Arts Center
Time:  9am-4pm
Cost:  $90, includes box blanks

Instructor:  Tom Willing

Description:  After his September Club demonstration, Tom will now work with you to create a box of your own design.  Tom will walk everyone through the process of roughing it out, the design considerations, the chucking methods needed to finish the top and bottom, and options to finish.  See the September Box Making Demo description for our Club meeting for more on Tom's background and approach to box making.  

All box blanks will be provided, but you, of course may bring your own.  

At the start of the class, Tom will present the lesson plan for the day and discuss the option of working straight through and finishing without a lunch break.  However, Priority One is that you will make a box by the end of the class.

For those who sign up, more information will be provided to prepare you for this class regarding wood to bring, tools needed and other information.
