Your Woodworking Coach

What Do You Need?

Are you are looking for a woodworking class, where you can learn a lot, make new friends and get comfortable being around the tools and machinery of a typical shop? This is usually a ten week commitment of one night a week.

Or do you just need to learn a few specific things, and don't want or need the longer classes... Perhaps you even want some coaching in your own space.​  

Either way we have you covered.
