Drawing For Crafts From 2101 Series
So you want to be a woodwright. Then you've come to the right place. Join Roy in his workshop and learn some new woodworking techniques and how to make a few of his most unique crafts.
Please remember that woodworking can be dangerous if you do not take some precautions. Always wear gloves; gouges and saws are sharp and skin will not provide a lot of protection. Remember your goggles; splinters and sawdust can really fly when you start working hard. Always read instructions thoroughly before you begin; you want to have all your necessary tools and materials easily at hand. Pay close attention to any special precautions your materials require; varnishes and paints require well-ventilated areas.
