Event description

Description

Woodworking 101 is a class where you learn the basics of woodworking. Participants will pick from options of old growth, barn, and mid-century lumber to create a custom table. No need to bring 2x4’s hanging out your honda, because materials are included.

There are two options for this class: a 4-week and a 5-week option.

4-Week Option: Participants build a flat surface. Come in having an idea of what you want to make (i.e., table top, headboard, shelves, wood replica vinyl record).

5-Week Option: Participants design and complete a custom table including a base (i.e., workbench, dining table, coffee table). Table designs will be approved by the instructor on your first day.

Important Details: Please note tables should be no more than 10 square feet. Designs more than 10 square feet will need approval and have an additional charge based on material use. Additionally, larger tables may not be completed in the duration of the class. Should larger tables not be completed, they can be finished in the “Open Shop” class.

Note: If the ticket type you want is not available, we may be able to accommodate! Email us to ask.
