Woodworking (Mumbai)

The versatility and strength of #wood allows it to be used for constructing houses, boats, guitars, cabinets, and more. First, participants will be introduced to wood: #grain, #orientation, and #strength. Next, you will be taught how to build a laptop table or bedside table, which you get to take back home! Over the course, you will gain familiarity with the #saw, #chisel, #hammer, etc.

Our goal is to make sure each participant walks away a master in basic wood #joinery, as well as the confidence to continue their tinkering and exploration with wood. All necessary materials will be provided.

Schedule:

  • Day 1: Introduction and cutting wood to size
  • Day 2: Joinery, dry fitting and final assembly
  • Day 3: Polish and finish
  • Day 4: Spillover
