Bring your imagination and make one or more games or pieces of game gear from wood. Options include rackets for ping pong or pickleball, a pair of regulation-size cornhole boards, a toss game, or a pegboard or pocket game that you design yourself.

The instructor will have project ideas, or you can develop your own project, subject to the instructor's assessment that it is one you are likely to complete during the four days of this class. A  supply of solid wood and plywood will be in the shop for your use. If your project requires special hardware, you will need to buy that on your own. The class will include safety training on the tools needed to build your project. By the end of the class, you should have one or more projects to take home and put to good use. Summer is partly for play, after all.
