In this 2 part introductory woodworking class (April 6th & 7th) you'll learn how to use the Table Saw, Miter Saw, Planer, Drill Press, and Oscillating Sander to create an eco-friendly addition for the kitchen counter.
This class will be taught by our very own Mark Thoson, and is a simplified version of one of the products he makes and sells at SolarTreeGoods. He'll share how this multi-purpose drying rack was developed, researched, constructed and refined for market; and provide a basic design template and hands-on instruction so you can create not one, but TWO drying racks!
Participants will be able to customize their racks by electing different sizes/shapes for the posts and bases. Other modifications such as adding finishes, and/or routing the base edge will also be discussed.
Drying Racks encourage reuse and reduce plastic waste by providing a functional and attractive way to dry and reuse plastic bags, beeswax wraps, reusable cups, baby bottles, and so much more! You can make a little something for yourself, the earth, and a friend!
The Minnesota Tool Library is a cooperative, volunteer-driven nonprofit which shares tools, trade skills and workshop space. Our mission is to empower each other, reduce waste, and improve communities through sharing.
