Boats often have parts which need a little (or sometimes a lot of) persuasion to fit into place. We'll look into several ways to bend wood to your will, including sawing, laminating and steaming. We'll cover which technique is appropriate for a particular application, and what tools and materials are best. Everybody gets to make sample parts to take home.

.All tools and materials will be provided. Please wear work clothes.


Fees are due at the time of registration. Classes may be cancelled or rescheduled in case of emergency or if the minimum attendance is not met. In the event a class is cancelled, a full refund will be provided.
