 The plus means that all students will be introduced and taught to use and operate the following woodworking tools, equipment and machinery: drill press, 14 and 22inch bandsaws, 20 inch scrollsaw, overhead pin-router/shaper, Delta belt/disc sander, 12 inch jointer, 15 inch thickness planer, mortiser, wood lathe, 4x24inch belt sander, hand drill, and various handplanes, chisels and other hand tools. 

Sharpening and care of all hand tools will be taught. Students will not need to have any of their own tools.  Fred has everything you will need but if you wish to purchase some of your own tools Fred will assist you to get the best price and quality for your money. 

Fred has been a cabinetmaker and luthier for over forty years and has a very well-equipped woodshop in Richmond, Texas located near Highway 59 and FM762.
