This is a great class for any beginner who would like to start using hand tools. The use of handsaws, planes and chisels will be the main focus of this class. You will cut boards to length using handsaws and plain edges flat straight and square in order to glue boards together to acquire the proper width. Then you will have a choice of hand dovetailing the box together or to use rabbet joints and decorative nails as an alternative. As a finishing touch you will miter a base frame around the box and ornament its edge with a hand planed molding. To complete the box the top will be hinged on with either snipe hinges or strap hinges it's your choice. The end of the class will address the finishing of the piece using layers of milk paint.
