Join us for the third session of our Spring Project Series! Whether you're interested in following the build progress of our 12' rowing skiff,  learning some new techniques,  or are seriously contemplating building your own boat for a blissful summer on the lake... this series will have something for everyone.  No experience necessary!

Our third session is all about Spline Joints - learn about this simple and formidable woodworking technique that can both strengthen and add beautiful detail to your projects.  This bundle of content includes an introductory handout, Video Demo, and a detailed how-to for incorporating Spline Joints beyond our build. Our Instructor Evan demonstrates how to use the the table saw to create Splines as he prepares the pieces for our Transom.  

*This session is recorded content. There is not a corresponding LIVE event. Registrants will receive a link  to access the videos and accompanying materials and can peruse on their own timeline. Registration is available through the end of May.

Instructor Evan Mathiason is a lifelong woodworker. He recently completed an apprenticeship at the Arques School of Wooden Boatbuilding, focusing on traditional methods of construction, and is excited to share that experience with the MTL community through our Spring Project Series. Evan also has an interest in hand tool skills and green woodworking - including spoon and bowl carving.  In his professional life, he's worked in politics, art, and commercial photography. Recently,  he has been devoting most of his time to raising two young children, gardening and doing organizing work as a volunteer with MN350.  He lives with his wife and kids on the West side of St Paul and hopes to continue expanding his practice of wood craft.

MN Tool Library
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. You can read more about what we do on our website: www.mntoollibrary.org/
