WKS: Building a Wooden Toolbox

In this workshop we will take the skills we learned from the basic wood shop class and build on them to create a wooden toolbox. Learn how to plan, measure, and cut accurately, making parts that fit together and match our designs. This course is a must for anyone looking to take their skills to the next level to make higher quality wooden products. Bob Guerrero will lead this class and share the woodworking tips and tricks he's learned over the decades he's taught wood shop courses for high schools and colleges.
