    Intermediate Woodworking will expand the student's knowledge of wood shop safety and the proper setup and use of specific woodworking machinery. Machines covered in this class include the joiner, table saw, planer and router. 
     
    During this hands-on, two day class students will create their very own wood cutting board while learning effective glue up methods, proper sanding techniques, and efficient router setup. 

    A $25 materials fee covers each student's wood and consumables for their take-home project.

    This is a two day course held on July 11th and July 12th from 1 PM to 3:30 PM.

    For students interested in learning additional woodworking techniques, MakerPlace offers Intermediate Woodworking Part 2: End Grain Cutting Boards as an extension to the Part 1 course.

    Screen printing basics. Make stuff! Print on T-shirts, signs, posters and just about anything you can think of.  Vinyl stencil is a quick easy way to get exposure to t-shirt printing using vector art.  You will learn to use the cutter/plotter, transfer vinyl stickers, and print shirts all in one class.  We will discuss tools, techniques and media.  Take advantage of hands-on projects and small class sizes. Get detailed understanding of what screen printing is and how to apply it to your project.  At Maker Place we have everything you need to make professional prints on t-shirts. In this class, we will learn to print with vinyl stencils. 
    Closed-toe shoes are required. 
    A small materials fee covers each student's pigments, ink and screens. 
    Students should bring in their own Tshirt that they would like to print on. (It wouldn't hurt to have a backup too.)
    Due to the extensive amount of information covered in this course, the instructor will provide a demo design for students to practice with.

    This is an optional, follow-up course that introduces students to additional woodworking techniques to convert their face grain cutting board into an end grain cutting board. While face grain boards can last through years of use, the benefits of an end grain cutting board are numerous- they will last a lifetime, the won't dull knife edges, and they are virtually scratch resistant. This class covers additional table saw and router techniques which will prove valuable in future woodworking endeavors.
    A $10 materials fee covers each student's consumables for this course. 

    Prerequisite: Prior completion of Intermediate Wood Working Part 1 is REQUIRED for this course. Students will use the face grain cutting boards they've built in the Intermediate Wood Working Part 1 and convert them into end grain cutting boards.
