*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: 8706, Meilen
Event Type: Other
Location: Noon Wood Workshop, Meilen 8707

I will be facilitating this event on an ongoing basis every Monday evening.

Details
If you ever wondered how to get started with a project, in this two-part (2X3-hours on two consecutive Mondays) workshop you can get your feet wet in woodworking without investing in your own equipment or committing to long courses.

We use modern methodologies to show you a range of skills in a project-based activity with the help of a professional woodworker, Rob Stoeckel, with whom you will be guided through from planning to finishing your first project. At the end you will go home with a finished product and you will gain confidence in handling tools and machines before you start your individual project.

You will:
- do some measurements
- use a jigsaw
- drill and screw
- glue
- maybe use a router
- use a sanding machine
- use a lamelo machine
- under supervision use a band saw and a miter saw

Price:
Part 1 and 2: 160 Chf

Interesting idea. I’m close enough to participate. What is the first project?

Re: Noon Woodwork open workshop

Our first project will be a serving tray as detailed in the attachment. In time we will be offering a second course with a choice of items to make. Depending on interest, demand and compatibility I am also considering opening my workshop to larger individual projects once these 2 courses have been completed,similar to self service garages.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Re: Noon Woodwork open workshop

Thanks for the reply. I definitely like the idea of having access to a shop with well maintained stationary equipment. I`m definitely interested in hearing more about your plans for that possibility. Completing pre-requisite courses would be fine for me.

I took a look at the plans. I appreciate you posting. I think it looks good. There was some doubt about the biscuit joiner though. My personal interest would before something more aesthetically and visually interesting. Or since it is a first project, maybe a different type of joint at each corner. Of course, I don't really know how that works into a class setting or with time factor. It was just my reaction to the plans.

Re: Noon Woodwork open workshop

This is something I'd be interested in, however my Mondays are already booked out with another course. If you are planning on another 2 parter on another day of the week please let me know.

Re: Noon Woodwork open workshop

I just need to learn to be patient with assembling Ikea stuff. And not kill myself with a screwdriver or a hammer. Being an artist is so much easier.

No workshops on that????

At this stage it will be Mondays only in time we will open for individual projects on Thursday evenings, if you have a group of 5 to 8 people we would then run a class on two consecutive Thursdays.

Thanks for your input, the first course is a tried and tested project which anyone can complete over the two evenings. The second course project is more flexible and we can tailor it to individuals depending on skill levels.
