Learn DIY skills from local residential remodeling carpenter Tom Walter of TKCarpentry.  Courses will review the tools, materials, and techniques utilized in DIY projects, provide demonstrations of topics, and include open question/answer time for participants seeking information on projects they are currently working on or considering doing themselves!  Please RSVP if you plan to attend by emailing Leahf@nullcityofws.org or calling 336-727-2831.

February 7- Tools of the Trade:  Tool knowledge is a great foundation for anyone looking to take on DIY projects!  Join Tom for an overview and discussion of carpentry tools including hand tools, table/miter/circular saws, additional specialty saws, drills, routers, nail guns, and sanders.  Learn the features of each tool and discuss their applications.  Tom will bring his tools for the course so participants have hands-on exposure, but participants are also welcome to bring tools they own and have questions about.

March 7-  Drywall Repair:  Minor wall repair is a great project which most homeowners can DIY!  Learn about the tools and materials used in the drywall trade, how to repair wall holes and cracks, install a patch, tape, apply joint compound, and sand a repair to paint-ready condition.

April 4-  Wall Painting:  Need to do touchups?  Looking to change a room color?  Painting is a great low cost way to update any space, and best of all it’s probably the easiest DIY project out there!  Learn the steps necessary to complete an interior wall painting project.   Topics will include tools and materials, before you paint prep work, and how to paint instruction.

May 2- Tile:  Tile is a beautiful surface for floors, walls, backsplashes, and art/furniture projects, and it’s not that difficult to install.  Learn about the tools and materials used in the tile trade and how to cut, install, grout, and finish tile.  Once you understand the basics of tile installation, that knowledge can be applied to complete any DIY tile project you may have!
