Course Number:      SCP 0024N1
Campus: Boston-Fenway

Course Description:

This course provides you with the knowledge and confidence to add new materials to your current portfolio. We will start with the basic process of making your own stretcher bars both by cutting down 2" x 4" and by using lap joints in dimensional hardwood. We will explore fasteners for different types of materials and hanging devices for installation needs. We will cover wall construction, both wood and steel stud, and how to work with drywall. Progressing on we will construct a small shelving unit to complete the class. An understanding of the tools available and how to use them can add a new dimension to your work.  Students will emerge with a solid understanding of all the tools in the woodshop. This class will fulfill the safety class requirement to use the woodshop.
