NOC Woodworking Class Starts Nov. 1


Northern Oklahoma College’s “Woodworking Class,” a community enrichment course, offers community members and NOC students a great opportunity to build that special project they always wanted but didn’t have the space or equipment needed to get it done. NOC’s large shop and large array of woodworking equipment and tools will be available to those who attend this class.

NOC woodworking class instructor Rick Allan said the class will begin Tuesday, Nov. 1 and continue through Dec. 13. Participants will meet in the woodshop located in the Creative Arts Building on the Tonkawa campus from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, except Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24.

The cost is $45, not including materials. Class members may either bring their own materials or purchase them in the class.

“Both men and women will enjoy working on their special projects, ranging from craft items to fine furniture,” Allan said.  “Some of the projects completed during previous classes included a cedar chest, oak changing table, canning shelves, wood art, outdoor bench using old tractor wheels, decorative baskets, an entertainment center, cabinets constructed using old barn wood and a gun cabinet.”

NOC community enrichment classes are non-credit courses and have no grades, tests or attendance requirements. You may enroll at the first class or in advance at the NOC registrar’s office located in the Vineyard Library-Administration Building on the Tonkawa campus.
