Hammerstone School Basic Carpentry Skills 101 Workshop

Hammerstone School Carpentry Basics 101


2-day basic skills workshops introduce students to basic carpentry concepts of layout, cutting, and fastening, while building a pair of sawhorses that students will take home after the class. The skills learned in this class form a foundation for both rough carpentry and more detailed finish work. After this class, students will be able to safely use a range of hand and power tools and will understand the fundamentals of construction. This class can be taken as a stand-alone class, or as a pre-requisite for any of the other longer project-based classes.

Topics Covered:

Reading plans
Cross-cutting with handsaw
Cross-cutting with circular saw
Cross-cutting angles
Laying out and cutting plywood
Fastening with screws
Fastening with nails
Project Description: Students will build a pair of sturdy sawhorses that are theirs to take home after the class. These horses are constructed from 2x material and plywood, and serve as a good introduction to cross-cutting, ripping, cutting angles, and using plywood. Take Home: Students take home their assembled sawhorses.
