Woodworking skills taught at MCST

ROCKLAND — Classes in woodworking, using hand tools, will begin soon at Mid-Coast School of Technology Adult Education. Woodworking for Women will begin March 30 and is designed for the beginner craftswoman who would like a relaxed, fun learning experience. A small, classic foot stool, made of pine, will be the project each student works on while learning the fundamentals of layout, joinery and tool sharpening. A second class, Building an Apprentice Tool Cabinet, will be a more demanding project with a truly handsome result. This hardwood cabinet is designed to mount on a wall and features shelves in the fold-out doors, as well as the back panel. Traditionally used to store chisels, planes and other hand tools, this cabinet can have many purposes. The classes have limited space, so early registration is encouraged. Call 596-7752 to register.
