Hands on Bookmark Class

This  class will allow you to be able to design and make, what I think is the most unique wooden gift item I make which is wooden bookmarks.  You will be able to not only design unique patterns, but you will be able to make them thin enough and strong enough to actually be used as bookmarks.  Besides covering basic safety and techniques using tools, we will cover the following:

  1. Designing Bookmark
  2. Selecting woods
  3. Ripping wood [for solid wood bookmarks]
  4. Ripping wood [for laminated bookmarks]
  5. Cutting designs with the jig saw or band saw
  6. Gluing lamination
  7. Cutting on table saw
  8. Drilling hole for tassels
  9. Hand sanding to shape
  10. Spray Finishing
  11. Finishing the finish with steel wool and wax
  12. Applying tassels
