Learn how to use hand tools skillfully in this three-week component of BARN's Beginning Woodworking series.

You will build a two-compartment tote, handy for storing or carrying silverware, garden tools or other items. The project was specifically designed to give you experience with the most common hand tools. You will learn to use:

  • measuring and marking tools
  • crosscut and rip cut hand saws
  • hand planes
  • chisels
  • hand drill (bit and brace)
  • coping saw


  • Ages 14+ are welcome.
  • Depending on your pace, you may need to work on your tote during Open Studio time in order to complete it by the end of the class. The instructor will be available at the beginning of the Open Studio sessions that begin immediately after each of these class sessions, so you may wish to bring a lunch and plan to stay past noon. To participate in these sessions, you must first take our free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class. See dates on the calendar. (Use of the shop during these times is always free for members. Non-members can also participate at no charge for the duration of this class.)
  • BARN is practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Overall BARN safety policies are here.
  • You must wear closed-toe shoes.
  • Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.

Instructor: Paul Kury. Paul studied woodworking at Lonnie Bird’s School of Fine Woodworking in Dandridge, Tennessee, and has been an active woodworker for 40 years. His preference is 18th century furniture. Paul also volunteers as a woodworking safety monitor at BARN.
