Workshop description

Michel will welcome you in his studio for a few hours of initiation to woodworking, in particular to half-wood assembly.

The discovery of the place, some theoretical bases on woodworking and the tools used will start the session, you will go from the raw material to the finished product and discover truing, planing, tracing, sawing, notching and gluing.

After a brief presentation of traditional wood assemblies (mortise and tenon, half-wood, straight tail, dovetail, etc.), it will be your turn to play!

You will learn how to trace your assemblies, the key to precision, and then how to cut them with a saw and chisel because yes, everything is done by hand! It is by repeating the gestures that you will learn to master them with the necessary rigour.

You will leave this workshop with new knowledge, but also with a beautiful wooden trivet.
