Location:           CR Main Campus, AT 109

Instructor:         Greg Zall

Greg Zall brings his 25-plus years of woodworking experience to College of the Redwoods.  Marquetry is a technique in which different colors of wood veneers are carefully cut to fit precisely together in a design.  The idea that one can paint a picture using the natural colors of wood is ancient.  In the mid-sixteenth century, Italian craftsmen started using marquetry as furniture decoration, beginning a long history that still thrives today.  During the process of completing a project, students will learn the double-bevel method of marquetry.  This highly accurate technique eliminates gaps around individual pieces of the marquetry picture.  In addition to the class fee payable at the time of registration, there will be an additional fee for tools and materials of $60 payable to the instructor on the first day of class.  This kit includes a set of high-quality tools, and a pack of fun veneers in a variety of textures and colors.

Instructor:         Nick Shull

This class will introduce you to the use of computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines for woodworking and cabinetmaking.   Learn about CNC routers, software, tooling,  and methods of work holding.  The CNC router works like a printer.  Work is composed on a computer and then the design or drawing is sent to the CNC router for the hard copy.  This outputs a 3-dimensional copy of the work.  The CNC router uses a cutting tool instead of an ink jet.  The cutting tool is generally a router, but other cutters can be used as well.  The CNC router is ideal for hobbies, engineering prototyping, product development, art, robotic education, and production work.
