This is a class where the beginner and the long-term woodworker work side by side and each gain tremendously. The work is presented in such a way that it is easily understood by the novice. At the same time the experienced woodworker will find that the work fills in all sorts of knowledge gaps that update and refresh their skills. Some newcomers, wishing to save time, want to pass over this class for the more advanced CFT 105 class only to return later to CFT 100. This course is normally taught in the Fall semester (starting late August).
