Saw-sational Skills Workshop
As participants on our Nailing it! DIY Fundamentals Course will tell you, sawing is trickier than you think.
Once you get the hang of it, it’s like riding a bicycle, but it can take a little time to get the technique right.
There are many different types of saw. We will be concentrating on the saws which we think the DIYer is most likely to use.
What you will learn…
On this Saw-sational Skills course we introduce you to different ways of cutting wood. We help you learn to choose the right sawing technique for the right circumstances.
Sawing by hand…
We will start with some hand sawing, including an introduction to cutting accurately with a coping saw. These are really useful skills when fitting Skirting Board, or scribing shelves and end panels.
Then we will progress onto introducing you to using cordless jigsaws and circular saws.
Jigsaws are extremely useful tools for the DIYer, but they are also difficult to get accurate results with.
We will teach you some simple techniques, and then give you lots of practice, so that you leave the course feeling much more confident in choosing and using a jigsaw, and getting accurate results on your DIY projects at home.
Lastly we will introduce you to using basic circular saws. These versatile saws can be extremely helpful in your DIY projects. However, they can initially appear to be a little intimidating. We will teach you how to use them safely, and show you techniques for getting the best out of them.
