August 15-20th, 2016 | $650 | WoodenBoat School | Brooklin, Maine
In this six-day course, you will learn how to design, carve, and finish a set of oars custom fit for you and your boat. I will demonstrate the ways of working wood with the hand-tools; how we size oars to a boat; and rowing technique after a row on the water. Register at WoodenBoat School.
Wednesdays 9-11am | $200 | Compass Project | Biddeford, Maine
We will build a quarter-scale model of an Echo Bay Dory Skiff. The class is ongoing on Wednesdays at Compass Project and the project takes 6-10 sessions. In the end you will leave with the model skiff replica true to the full size boat, new boatbuilding skills, and a skiff that you can paint, display, or use for inspiring kids to build a full size boat that they can use.
July 10-16 | $750 | WoodenBoat School
In this week-long class, you will learn how to take an existing lines drawing of a relatively simple boat and 3D model it in the computer, generate drawings based on the model, and how to prepare files for CNC cutting. We will culminate the week with a visit to see a large CNC router cut out boat parts from one of our files. Register at WoodenBoat School.
