| Make a toenail

Zaanstad Regional College -
20 minutes
Minimum age:
12 years

The minimum age is 12 years.


Turn a square lath into an almost round stick that you can hammer into a piece of wood to lock a joint. You learn to plane with a hand plane and stab with a chisel. You will also learn about working posture while planning and how to adjust the planning chisel. We work with pine or larch. After the workshop, you will have your own toenail. The advanced woodworker can also pierce a worvel with a chisel. Of course, we will be happy to tell you more about the Technician Wood and Restoration course.


Technician Wood and Restoration is the only full-fledged MBO level 3 course to become a restoration carpenter. It is taught at 3 locations in the Netherlands: Hengelo, Arnhem and Zaandam. You will learn carpentry by hand, with machines and even with CNC-controlled machines during the 3-year course. So you can ‘get by’ in the machine shop and on-site. Restoring panelling and buildings is the core of the course. And you are also making new objects, with modern techniques.
