Standard wood flooring installation tools will be used.  Powernailers, circular saw, table saw, router as well as the track saw and scroll saw. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the number of advanced techniques to be demonstrated and practiced, there won’t be time for basic instruction. Students should be competent installers comfortable using nailing machines, circular saws, and table saws.

Bring your own hand tools (hammer, chisels, block planes, hand saws, etc.) and come ready to get down to work!


 

 

FROM THE INSTRUCTOR

Howard Brickman
Brickman Consulting

"This class is designed to be the avid contractor’s answer to an extreme sports vacation! You can’t beat the camraderie of working side by side and the small class size provides many opportunities to demonstrate how several separate relatively simple techniques can be combined to produce exceptional results."
