About this Event
A one day course developing the skills you have learned from our 'Introduction to Woodwork - Hand Tools 1' course, as well as expanding tool knowledge and skills.


5 hours with a 30 minute lunch break. 10am - 3pm. Tea and coffee breaks are optional. Lunch is not provided so please bring lunch with you, there are places nearby to grab some lunch if needed.

Where is the course run?

Leeds Wood Recycling Warehouse, Unit 6, 24 Croydon Street, Holbeck, Leeds, LS11 9RT

What skill level should I be?

The course is designed to build on the skills and techniques you have learnt in our Introduction to Woodwork - Hand Tools 1 course. Please make sure you have completed our Hand Tools 1 course as we like to ensure everybody is at a similar skill level. We do this to make sure all participants get the most out of the day and can learn as much as possible.

What will I learn?

After learning how to use the basic tools such as saws and drill on the previous course, participants will venture into more advanced tools and joinery. We will demonstrate how to produce three of the most common joints found in furniture and cabinet making. You will use a new range of hand tools such as chisels and learn different ways of marking and measuring to create some basic joints of your own.

As with all of our courses we try to answer all of the questions we can as we know people come to these courses with a project in mind. There are no silly questions!

What else is included

Another main aim of this course is to empower people to be able to complete their own jobs or projects at home and give them confidence in their own woodworking ability by developing skills. We want to make people comfortable using timber yards, tool suppliers and places such as Leeds Wood Recycling

Who is the tutor?

We have a pool of experience makers from a range of backgrounds, such as furniture/ cabinet makers and restorers, luthiers, picture framers, eco and site builders and joiners.

What do I need to bring?

All tools are supplied. Lunch is not supplied so make sure you've got some with you. Please wear clothes suitable for dusty work and sensible shoes. We provide the hot drinks and biscuits for the break. Please bring warm clothing – we recommend you bring layers – it can be cold in our workshop even in summer.. It's also a good idea to bring a notepad and pencil so you can make notes!

What about COVID?

LWR takes COVID procedures very seriously and every care has been taken to keep risk at a minimal level, whilst allowing people to keep connected and learn in a safe environment. With that in mind we are keeping class sizes to a maximum of 8. Our COVID procedures are in line with government guidelines.

Where can I park my car or bike?

There is free car parking opposite LWR (it’s free to use for LWR participants.) You're welcome to bring your bike in the warehouse to keep it safe.
