Beginner’s Tool Workshop
Thursday, April 7, 2022
9am – 6pm
Participants will become familiar with and learn to operate a wide variety of hand and power tools. Instruction will be given to ensure the safe and effective use of each tool. Some of the tools you can expect to use are tape measure, drill, screw drivers, hand saws, impact drivers, miter saw, router, compound miter saw, laser level, portaband saw, multitool, and pencils. We will also discuss and handle a variety of types of fasteners and building materials used in tiny house construction. This topic is vast, so we will go over the basics and then turn to your questions. Throughout the day, we will implement the construction skills we discuss to build a wooden tool tote for you to take home.
Introductory day designed to familiarize participants who have little or no prior building experience with the tools and materials used in our workshops and in tiny house building. Participants will be instructed in safety and appropriate usage and will use all tools under supervision to prepare for construction over the weekend.
