Wood grain can make or break a project. In this seminar we will discuss the different cuts of wood (flat, quarter, rift), how to choose which is appropriate for your project, what EMC is, and how to lay out your parts for best appearance and function.

To me one the real joys of woodworking is that hand tools and power tools can so effectively complement each other. There are days when my shop is a raucous cacophony of whirling cutters and singing blades and other days where hours of tranquilly reflective work create the Zen of Woodworking atmosphere that we often romanticize as the only way, and I enjoy every day.
