About this Event

WoodLab 201 covers the principles of basic woodworking techniques and the knowledge needed to build something properly to last. This is primarily a theory based class with some instruction taking place in the WoodLab.

Students will learn:

  • How to choose the right type of screws

  • How to cut a mortise and tenon joint

  • Basic overview of different types of wood joints
