We designed this class to give you a solid foundation in the most common joints used in general carpentry, cabinet and furniture making. The techniques we will focus on in this class will be made by machine. We will use the types of woodworking machines common to most home or small professional shops. These include the table saw, bandsaw, router, and drill press.

The class will introduce you to joint types, applications, and methods for producing wood-to-wood joints using woodworking machines. We will use the types of machines commonly found in home and small commercial shops. The course will emphasize joinery nomenclature, operator safety, cut repeatability, and accuracy.
