Event description

Description

Learn how to accurately cut and assemble pieces to make a storage cube - aka "a box." Sounds deceptively simple, but the skills you'll acquire are the building blocks of furniture, cabinets, rough framing, or even just more boxes!

Stack big ones for a modular shelf. Group small ones for countertop storage. Add wheels and an upholstered top for an ottoman with storage space inside.

Skill level: This class is built for beginners

Topics covered:

  • measuring & marking accurately

  • checking for square / corrections

  • basic tablesaw use & safety

  • assembly: nail guns and power drills

Class fees/scholarships/donations: Class fees include all materials. Scholarships options are available on every class registration page, and are 100% funded through donations from other students. Please accept this gift if you need it; if you can, please consider paying more to pay it forward!

FAQs

What can/can't I bring to the event? Please wear closed-toe shoes, tie long hair back, remove all hand/wrist/neck jewelry, and avoid baggy clothing or clothing with things hanging from them (sweatshirt hood ties, etc). You may also want to bring a water bottle and a snack
.

What is your refund policy? You may transfer your ticket to another individual who is 18 years of age or older. To do so, please follow the link in the confirmation email that you received after registering. We currently do not offer refunds or transfers between classes.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? We only accept students over 18 years of age unless otherwise indicated in the class description.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? There is street parking available on the surrounding streets. The #4 bus runs on Mississippi and drops off within a block of the ReBuilding Center. The Overlook Park stop on the Yellow Max Line is about a 15 minute walk, as well.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No - we'd prefer to save a few trees! In the rare situation that any discrepancies come up, we'd rather look up registration details electronically.
