    Woodworking at the Next Level 2018-2019

    Register (free) for the MANDATORY MEETING, August 25, 2017, 6 to 9 pm at Multnomah Art Center for those wanting consideration for admission to Woodworking at the Next Level 2018-2019. 

    Instructors;  Jeff Zens, Dennis Rodrigues and Chip Webster

    Woodworking at the Next Level 2018-19 is a series of 20 classes over two years.  While there is a focus early in the series on hand tools, students will also gain experience with and knowledge of machine tools and an appreciation for the synergy between hand tools and machine work.  Success in the series requires long-term commitment to yourself, the instructors and to fellow students.

    Enrollment in the 2 year series is limited to 10 students to ensure ample opportunity for individual coaching.  The classes build on one another and most have specific prerequisites.  Admission to the series requires an interview with the instructors.

    Attendance at the August 25 meeting is a required first step toward admission to the program.  The meeting will provide you with information to help determine if this is the right program for you.  The instructors will give a thorough orientation to the two year series, explain their teaching philosophies and styles and answer your questions.  

    Following this meeting the instructors will schedule individual interviews of prospective students to identify those to be admitted to the 2018-19 series.  During the interview instructors will ask about your current level of experience, your expected time commitment to the program, examples of your work, and other information to determine your suitability for this program.  

    Admission to the 2018-19 series is NOT based on the date you signed up for the waiting list but rather on an assessment, via the interview process, of your interests, experience and, especially, your commitment to completing the entire two year series.

    Successful completion of the Hands-On Safety Test (HOST) is required for admission to Woodworking at the Next Level (i.e., you must have a current Guild Shop Green Card.)

     Build a Garden Bench in a Morning with Asa Christiana
     
    White Card Required

    This is a special class to introduce Guild members to Asa Christiana as our Resident Master instructor. The introductory price for this class includes $42 of materials.

    This is a Saturday-morning class for beginners, even those who have never touched a tool, and woodworkers of all levels. We’ll use off-the-shelf cedar deck material, a bottle of glue, and a box of screws to build a sturdy, stylish bench in just a few hours. 

    No prior tool use is required, just a White Card from the Guild. Materials will be provided. Along the way, you’ll learn safe use of a miter saw, and how to drill and drive screws like a pro.
        
    Asa Christiana is the former editor of Fine Woodworking magazine, now living in Portland and dedicated to sharing the basics of woodworking with as many people as possible. His new book, Build Stuff with Wood, out September 2017 from the Taunton Press, is targeted at true beginners. His upcoming guild classes will be aimed at woodworkers of all levels, and focused on the foolproof fundamentals he gleaned from 15 years of curating content at Fine Woodworking, as well as his own 20+ years of building stuff, from fine furniture to custom carpentry to crazy projects of all kinds.

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

     Instructor: Jeff Zens


    Last Sign-up Date:Friday, September 1, 2017

     

    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.  In order to have input into the class, please don’t use the Anonymous sign-up option.

    NL-16 Carcase Construction--Build a Finger-Joint Box with Lid 17-1

    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

    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.

    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 first class in the series.

     

    1. Foolproof Furniture Design 

    Design is a mystery to many woodworkers, but the truth is that good design is more of a process than an art. Unaware of that process, and how fun and effective it can be, most woodworkers skimp on the design stage, leaping into the part they love most, cutting wood, only to discover too late that something isn’t right.

    In this short, power-packed class, the former editor of Fine Woodworking will show you where to start your search for inspiration and how to end up with a piece that is both beautiful and functional, the two pillars of furniture design. Whether your goal is to reproduce classic pieces, create your own designs in a traditional mode, or invent something completely new, you’ll get practical tips for every stage, including tools and materials for making mockups, which let you preview and refine your designs before you cut into your stack of pricey lumber.

     

    Materials: Students should bring sketch pads, pencils, and drawing tools.


    Certification required: None


    Class is mostly a lecture/slideshow, with some hands-on near the end.


     

    Outline:

    1. Start with the architectural standards for furniture

    2. Know the established styles

    3. Know what styles and ideas mix and which don’t

    4. How to reach outside the box for ideas

    5. Design dos and don'ts

    6. Pick a piece and a mode

    7. 2D sketching--pencil or computer. Students will pause here to do some sketching, and report back to class on the results, with everyone sharing advice.

    8. Brief talk on why mock-ups are so important, and how to make one with cheap materials. .

    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

    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.

     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.

    There are no 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, Nov. 11, 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!

    WAITLIST

    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.
