Over two evenings in the Boatshop, you’ll build a set of three nesting oval boxes using boatbuilding techniques such as clinch nailing and steam bending. No experience is required; this class is a fantastic introduction to woodworking. Boxes are made from cherry and cedar, and all materials are provided.
