Students will register for this four-period class where they will use hand tools to blacksmith the hardware and dovetail pine boards together to make a wooden chest. Held outside in The Grove Studio, students will spend the first two periods each day at the Primitive Forge with Shel Browder and Steve Mankowski making the hardware, hinges, etc. for the chest. After lunch they will work with Ken Koons to use woodworking tools, handsaws, planes and chisels to make a traditional dovetailed box with the goal of completing the chest by the end of the week. Ken Koons will be available during period 5 if extra time is needed. Proper use of hand tools, safety, and how to maintain tools will be shared.

Class limit: 6 students, ages 16 and up

Materials fee: $75
