In this course, students will learn how to cut, assemble and finish wooden frames with corner spline joinery. In addition, students will be able to cut their own mats and professionally mount their work. These frames are intended to be wall-mounted, and will include turnbuttons that allow the media to be changed or adjusted, thereby making these great gifts for people to add their own photos or art. Students will learn:

– Cutting rabbets with the dado blade
– Cutting miters
– Keyed miter joinery
– Sanding and finishing techniques
– Mat cutting

The Wooden Boat School was founded by the Hudson River Maritime Museum in 2015 to preserve the maritime craft traditions of the Hudson Valley and to teach a hands-on interpretation of the living history of the Hudson River. The school offers diverse curriculum and opportunities which inspire skills in woodworking, boat building, and maritime craft. Also available are restoration services for wooden boats.
