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, current very high demand is why next available dates are 8-12 weeks away.  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 hardwoods.  The box is assembled with rebated lap joints reinforced with 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.
