    Introductory Woodworking

    Perfect for those with little or no woodworking experience wanting to learn more, this two session course is extremely popular as a starting point with us.  While we run the course two or three times every month, it is usually booked out 6-8 weeks in advance.  Our Introductory Woodworking course is a great starting point if you're new to Perth Wood School.   Participants make a simple and elegant solid timber box using Jarrah, Australian and imported hardwoods.  The box is assembled with rebated lap joints reinforced with Japanese wooden nails.  The lid simply lifts and slides out of the box.   During the course we provide lots of information about setting up your own workshop at home.

    Please choose your course date carefully as we have a policy regarding re-booking or cancellations at short notice.

    - Workshop induction and safety *
    - Timber species and selection
    - Safety and correct use of hand tools
    - Safety and correct use of power tools and machines
    - Routers and router tables

    We do not provide refunds if you simply change your mind or can't make it to the course that you have booked. Deposits are used to purchase materials prior to a course and we may have turned other customers away after you have booked.

    Failing to turn up to your booked course or workshop will result in loss of any deposit or course fee already paid.

    We will strive to accommodate booking changes where possible but no less than 7 days prior to the booked course. We will only accommodate one change per booking.  Failing to turn up to your booked course or workshop will result in loss of any deposit or course fee already paid.

    We are as flexible as possible in accommodating people who need to make up missed sessions. Please call us to find out more.

    QI work FIFO or shift work and none of the course dates suit me. What other options are on offer?
