Week One

This week (beginning Monday, 24th September 2007 ) I got to use some of the hand tools that we looked at last week, For three hours on Tuesday and again on Wednesday I have a practical class in woodworking/instrument building. This week, to get acquainted with the tools and some of the practices of the work we will be doing I made some joints , halving joints, lapped joints, and mortise and tenon joints to begin with. Next week we'll tackle making some Cam Clamps, integral to instrument making and a lot of other woodworking besides. No pictures today, maybe I'll take a few of the joints next time.
