Classes We Offer
Learn next level woodworking skills in this machine woodworking class. You'll gain experience using seven different machines, get ALL the insider tips on wood glue ups and then personalize your cutting board beauty with several different options. Cutting boards (and cutting board classes) make excellent gifts!
Understated and modern, our trim little plant stand could feel at home in any room. Students will learn how to glue up boards to make a larger wood surface, use a band saw to cut a perfect circle, and a drill press for fitting dowel legs into your stand. Fancy Japanese hand saws make an appearance in this course for an added design interest and bragging rights. What a cute little plant stand!
Beginning Joinery / Stool Building
Create your first woodworking wonder! A stool without screws or metal. This class was designed specifically for folks who are interested in really diving into woodworking. Through the build of a classically styled, modern stool, you’ll learn three common woodworking joints that can carry you through your own future projects. No previous experience is required and all materials except finishing supplies are included in the class. Both beginning and experienced woodworkers welcome.
