Joiner’s Mallet: Member Project Series
September 19 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm$100
Make Your Very Own Joiner’s Mallet!
The perfect class to take your joinery skills to the next level. A joiner’s mallet is an indispensable tool around the wood shop. The wide wooden face is more gentle on material and the back of your chisels when compared to a hammer while also being more precise than a rubber mallet.

How does this class work?
Participants will be provided materials, plans, templates and a project demonstration at the beginning of the class. The demonstration will cover how to make and use jigs for the table saw, band saw and miter saw to improve safety and cut quality while working with small parts. Participants will also learn how to use patterns on the router table. We will talk through the plans, design and challenges to be expected during the build. As a group we will pick the project materials based on form and function. All in stock hardwood will be available to choose from. After the demonstration and planning members will be allocated time to work independently from plans with several checkpoints to ensure we stay on pace. The instructor will be available for the entire day to answer questions, setup tools and assist when needed. Participants will be challenged with the goal to produce a stunning professional tool while also completing the entire project within the time provided.

About the Instructor:
Adam Ali, Director and Co-founder at Maker Cube
Adam is the true definition of a Maker with experience ranging from upholstery to machining exhaust fittings for light aircraft. He has been tinkering for as long as he can remember and fondly recalls spending summers with his dad and brothers building tree forts, soapbox racers, and bike ramps. Their favorite project? An epic two-floor pallet wood treehouse complete with lights, windows and (of course) a secret escape hatch. He followed his passion through school taking as many courses as he could in woodworking, metal fabrication, music production, and media arts. For the past 10 years, Adam has built skillsets in many disciplines with his favorite being custom car audio fabricator. Adam’s approach to design and making often comes from a need to solve problems that don’t have commercially available solutions.
