Choose from night, weekend or summer workshops in fine woodworking, basic woodworking, and wood turning. Our most popular classes are Fine Woodworking Level I, Build an Adirondack Chair, and Intro to Turning.

    We also offer private lessons, gift certificates, and an Open Shop program, where you pay by the hour to use our 5,000 SF shop during designated times. Additional services include use of our wide belt sander and custom jobs as time allows.

    We love visitors, so please feel free to visit us any time on the first floor of One Cottage Street!
