Woodworking for Women | Seattle Central College - Continuing EducationGain a solid introduction to woodworking through the construction of a carpenter’s stool in a laid-back and supportive atmosphere.

The curriculum is the same as our Woodworking I class, and you’ll learn:

  • shop safety, including personal protection in the wood shop
  • the properties of wood and how that informs the selection and milling of lumber
  • how to properly use hand tools (handsaw, block plane, chisel, hammer) and power tools (hand drill, router, drill press and table, miter, band saws).

We’ll also focus on joinery techniques, the importance of sharp tools, when to use different kinds of fasteners and adhesives, and basic methods of wood finishing.
