Basic Woodworking: Box
An introduction to the fundamentals of woodworking. Start with a given plan and work it through completion using hand and power tools.

Completion qualifies students for Woodworking Open Shop. Complete attendance is required to fulfill this requirement. Other excellent follow-up classes include:
