Woodworking 101

April 5, 2018 – April 8, 2018

Randy Ogle

During this workshop students will make a basic 12 x12 cutting board and then explore their creative side on creating a second one. You will use a planer, bandsaw, drillpress and a variety of sanders to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Over-sized salad forks might also be made using the same equipment. Students will gain a better understanding of basic woodworking learning by exploring what works and what doesn’t. Open to all skill levels.


Randy Ogle is a fourth-generation woodworker and owner of The Chair Shop in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. He has been making furniture for over 45 years, using some of the same tools as his father and grandfather. A member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, Ogle is a frequent Arrowmont woodworking and woodturning instructor.
