Carpentry at Cambo

Would you like to learn basic carpentry skills? Using hand tools we will work on different projects starting with Adirondack chairs. These comfortable and stylish chairs look great and are easy to make. If we have time, we will move on to other projects such as bench making, carving and shed making. No previous experience is needed and you will be introduced to hand skills such as sawing, measuring and sharpening which you can use at home on your own projects. We will be working in the Joiner’s Shop at the old Sawmill with its recently installed solar lighting. There is no charge for this course. We meet every Tuesday 10am. To book a place call 01333 450054. Tutor Jon Warnes has been working with wood for over 20 years. He is particularly interested in working with “green” (recently cut) wood as it is beautiful to turn and produces minimal dust. He has been making indoor and outdoor furniture to commission and also carves spoons.
