- Power tools can be intimidating. Maybe not as intimidating as the SF Giant’s bleacher section if you’re wearing visiting team colors (especially if you’re a Dodgers fan...), but power tools can certainly give you the pregnant pause if you aren’t quite sure how they operate. Let us help you work through that tool time anxiety... Workshop instructors Katie Gong and Nick Sass will teach you about the most important tools in your toolkit, how to use a drill, basic saws, sanders and levels. You’ll learn which tools work best for fix-it situations, and when you will need to upgrade your tool set. We’ll also show you some around the house hints like using anchors in a wall, when to upgrade from hand tools to electric tools, and more. For your final project, you can use your new found handyman (or handywoman, of course...) skills to channel your inner-Bob-Villa and build your very own wooden toolbox!! As we post additional Carpentry & Design Project classes (bookshelves, benches, and headboards), you will be able to enroll in these classes. supplies needed: Workshop will supply all tools and supplies for this class. However, you are welcome and encouraged to bring any tools you have from the following list: Cordless Drill (12, 18 volt or higher) with bits, a hammer, hand saw, a level, and/or your entire toolbox. teacher bio: We’ve got the ying- yang of a female designer/ builder and a manly Carpenter to round out this teaching duo. Katie Gong is a crafter, painter, builder and DIY handy lady, from Davis, California. Even as a young ’un, Katie would rock overalls and build tree houses out of recycled materials from her dad’s construction business. And you know those amazing displays and installations at Anthropologie that dazzle you each time they go up? Yep, Katie designed those. Currently, Katie builds furniture and designs home interiors for private clients and is part of Kelly Malone’s Design Team, wood-walling the city over. Nick Sass is a carpenter and builder from Redding, CA. Nick helped with The Bold Italic’s redesign, builds his own furniture, and can sling beers and chainsaws interchangeably. (We’ve watched him do this...)
