To celebrate National Woodworking Month, the Rockler Woodworking and Hardware store, 425 Ernest W. Barrett Parkway NW in Kennesaw, will be offering hands-on project kits and classes throughout April.

Participants will learn new woodworking skills while handcrafting items they can take home after each class.

Projects include a wooden tote, a 4-in-1 screwdriver, a custom sign and a custom turned bowl. Participants can sign up for any or all of the classes. Plans, overview videos and materials will also be available online for those who want to make the projects on their own.

Class size will be limited from three to six participants. Each class will last two to three hours and will focus on a single project.

The wooden storage tote class covers the step-by-step process of assembling and finishing a small wooden storage tote. Woodturning basics are the focus of the 4-in-1 screwdriver class, using a lathe to craft a custom handle for assembly with a 4-in-1 screwdriver hardware kit. In the custom sign class, participants will use a plunge router and character templates to create their own sign on a wood blank. The bowl turning class provides the experience of turning and finishing a bowl on the lathe.

The cost of each class ranges from $15 to $35 and includes all materials.
