The first, in a three part series, of learning techniques in traditional woodworking with just hand tools. This project is a classic Shaker Candle box. Some techniques performed in this project are: how to properly cut with a hand saw, how to use different hand planes, using a brace and bit, how to make a groove and rabbet joint, and how to make a raised panel. The methods learned in this class are a good foundation for the next project that will repeat and add additional techniques to increase woodworking skill level. All materials and tools are provided for in this class.
