I will teach you the basic techniques of woodworking using hand-tools. The first two days you will learn how to make the first cuts with a handsaw, how to use the hand-plane and the most essential equipment. I will show you the difference between the local woods I use and how to understand them. You will have the chance to practice it working at my workbench From the third day I will show you some basic joinery techniques- without using screws or nails- like lap joints, tenon joints, dovetails, etc. And you will make them The following 5/6 days, I will teach you how to make chopping boards, wooden boxes, picture frames, etc. During the workshop I will show you some books, and discuss techniques and furniture history. At the end of the workshop you can take the product you have made back home. I can ship them. This is a practical experience so the more days you decide to stay the more you will learn. It will be a chance to learn a unique craft in a wonderful place in Italy!
