Woodworking Open Shop 1M22

Age Group: 
Teens (17+), Adults

Choose your time of the week and join a shop away from home, with tools, mentorship and community. Design and construct projects of your choice.

Projects must be a manageable size due to limited storage; check first with instructors. Once you select your section, that is your weekly time in the wood shop.

We do not permit switching between sections. Prerequisite: Basic Woodworking.  Masks must be worn at all times indoors.  Vaccinations required.

No class October 10th (Columbus Day).


My classmates were great and the instructors are outstanding!

Joe Stanewick continues to provide the quiet and patient guidance often needed, and Jazz has wonderful expertise with all the machinery and tools.
