If you’ve ever wanted to learn some basic carpentry skills to do some home fix-it projects yourself, or you have a project idea but aren’t sure how to build it… then this workshop is for you! Learn basic carpentry skills and practice using hand and power tools in a safe and supportive environment. Tools may include: circular saw, plane, sander, power drill, reciprocating saw, chisels, hammer, understanding the uses of various nails and screws, and more! No experience necessary. We will work on a project for the Sharing Farm – specifics to be determined. This workshop is a repeat of the one on June 25th, but this one is open to men as well as women.
