Wood is the perfect building material. With the right skills, there’s no end to what you can make with it. Our hands-on, project-focused woodworking classes will teach you those skills. Our guides will show you the “tools of the trade” and how to use them to create something unique. You’ll take home a masterpiece you can be proud of and gain the confidence needed to build almost anything! As with all our workshops, during checkout you can choose to sign up as an individual, where you’ll make one of the chosen finished products yourself, or select the Date Night or Buddy Up package, where you and your guest can make one of the finished products together.

The art of woodworking includes all the skills needed to cut, shape, and join wood to make something useful and/or beautiful. There are hundreds of tools available to do these tasks, including power tools that do most of the work for you as well as hand tools. Our woodworking workshops will familiarize you with many of these tools and give you hands-on experience using them.
Unless specified, all our workshops are designed with the beginner in mind. We consider it our job to get you started in the world of woodworking by helping you create something in 4 hours or less. That said, our woodworking workshops usually involve at least some immediate-level concepts and techniques that will make them educational and enjoyable for everyone, even those that have done woodworking in the past but are looking for a refresher.
You don’t need to bring a thing! We’ll provide all the protective gear, tools, and materials needed to complete your project.
Since many of our workshops involve power tools, we normally ask that all guests are 18 years old or older. However, minors are welcomed to join our workshops if an adult participates and supervises the minor throughout the workshop. This can be done several ways – by both the minor and the adult signing up as “guests” for the workshop or by signing up for our Buddy Up! or Date Night packages. These packages are designed for two people to make one thing together and both people will get bragging rights to the finished product and the great memories from the experience.
