Event description

Description

Delve into our five-day course and learn how to use a variety of woodworking hand tools. The method of how to make a mirror stand requires a lot of hand tool work. From creating the dovetails, making and fitting the drawer to turning the columns and mirror frame. By the end of the course, you will not only have learnt an array of woodworking techniques but you will have created a mirror stand to impress your family and friends.

What you will learn

The main focus of the course is the use of traditional hand tools, including planes and chisels. You will also learn to maintain these tools allowing them to work easily and cut cleanly. Mixed in with these traditional methods will be the use of small power tools to speed up the task. Across the five days, you will learn how to mark out and construct the stand's body, how to make and fit the drawer and the skill of woodturning to create the columns and feet. Finally, the end result of all your work will be the assembled mirror stand for you to take home.

What you will take home

  • Mirror stand
  • Certificate of attendance
  • ‘How to’ - Course details

Items you take home can change depending on the resources and materials available on the day.

Additional information

You will start your day with a welcome talk, including a hot drink, health and safety brief and a breakdown and review of the equipment you will be using.

This is a 'hands-on' course, each student being able to work at their own pace. The tutor will be able to demonstrate and explain the techniques to the group as a whole and individuals as required.

The minimum age is 14 years old and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the course and must not be left unattended during class hours. If you would like to read our terms and conditions click here.
