You will be working side-by-side all three days in the shop with instructor Bob Yapp. Bob has been a woodworker and furniture designer/maker for 34 years.
This will be an intense, learn-by-doing opportunity. You will learn why wood storms are important, how to measure an opening for a storm, how to grade and pick lumber, storm sash construction, glass/screen installation weather-stripping & installation techniques.
