  Doak House Museum Tool School  
(Museums)


Open to ages 10 to 12, students will learn 19th century woodworking techniques and complete a project using only hand tools.

Tool School is based on a text from 1839 called The Joiner and Cabinet Maker. The book was written for children and it describes the experiences of a young apprentice in England learning the trade while introducing several tools and techniques.

Students in the class will read excerpts from that book and be given other historical source material. There will be some smaller projects along the way where students practice skills before starting on the larger project.

Students will learn about trees, wood, basic hand tools including mallets, hammers, saws, planes, squares, gauges, boring tools, etc. Most of the tools the students will use are over one hundred years old.

Tool School will be offered July 16 to 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Cost is $40 per child, space is limited, call 423-636-8554 or email dboyd@tusculum.edu to reserve a spot.
