Make a sweet little partitioned box out of reclaimed wood, and use the same skills on other projects at home, like spice racks, drawer dividers, or knick-knack shelves. We'll explore mitered corners, recessed joinery, and corner clamping.
Project sizes are limited to 12" wide x 4" deep x 4" high, with 2 compartments. Perfect for storing tea, or gaming cards, or...? (Lids will lift off, rather than being hinged, to reinforce joinery learned in class.)
Skill level: Basic familiarity with either chopsaw or tablesaw required, such as a previous Intro to Carpentry class with us.
* measuring and cutting miter joints
