Traditional Woodworking with Roy Underhill

Saturday, May 3, Drop in anytime between 9am & 4pm
Free of charge, no advance registration necessary

Roy Underhill, star of the long-running Woodwright's Shop TV series, will be set up throughout the day under the big top in our parking lot for a FREE demonstration of traditional methods of working wood for everyone in attendance at Highland's big 30th birthday celebration. The main attraction will be Roy making shavings and magic using what he calls his carbon-neutral, alcohol-powered reciprocating lathe for bowl and spindle turning. You may get a chance to try it yourself! See how to start with a tree and use traditional tools to make mechanical marvels of maple and persimmon! Don't miss this opportunity to witness woodworking beyond the Norm!

Simple Machines the Old Fashioned Way with Roy Underhill

Sunday, May 4         9am - 4pm Tuition: $99       CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Here's a unique opportunity to learn how to make your own wooden screws from America's most famous master woodwright! Working from early French wood turning manuals, we'll first see how to make the tools to make wooden nuts and bolts. Roy will then demonstrate how to chase threads on the lathe, make iron and wooden taps, and shape and harden cutters for screw boxes. After this class is over, you'll have the know-how to produce anything from 1/4" wooden set screws to large wooden bench vise & cider press screws cut with the giant French besaigue chisel. Guaranteed to be a woodworking class you'll never forget. Class size is limited, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
