Get your hands onto the tools and craft your own box. This one day session at School of Wood will take you through the process of building your own handcrafted box which you can take home at the end.
School of Wood is a boutique woodworking studio based in Rye on the Mornington Peninsula where beginner woodworkers can visit and learn various woodworking techniques.
They’ll start by looking over the design of the box you’re going to make and highlight the joinery which is to be crafted. They’ll go over the timber selection and get to cutting the timber into the various individual components using the professional cutting machinery.
They’ll show you how to assemble and clamp your box into shape and while the glue is setting you can break for lunch and explore a local brewery or restaurant. After lunch, you’re onto the tasks of separating the lid from the base, sanding and finishing with a home made blend of mineral oil and locally produced bees wax to get a silky smooth feel and fixing the hinges and latch to complete the day.
