The key to a perfect finish is proper surface preparation...
Join our instructor for an informative discussion on and demonstration of surface preparation. John spent 15 years as a professional furniture maker and he'll show you how to use tools like the thickness planer, hand planes and cabinet scrapers to cut down on your sanding, share his philosophy on surface prep, and teach you techniques for that final touch-up. Participants will also learn when and how to use the belt sander, orbital sander, and hand sanding for their projects.

The Minnesota Tool Library is a membership based non profit which offers members access to tools, workshop space, and community. By sharing access to tools, no one needs to own costly tools for occasional use. With MTL, we all have low-cost access to the tools we need, when we need them. Moreover, we engage the community to expand its collective skill set, helping each other to learn which tools to use for meaningful projects and connect with each other while doing it. Classes are vital to MTL’s mission. They open the doors to all to learn about different tools, how to handle them and empower community members to create projects of their own.
