How It Works

Community Woodshop is a shared woodshop offering Memberships and Classes - like a fitness club.  As a member we expect you to be able to work safetly and independently.  If you're not quite there yet, we suggest taking a few classes first (membership not required).  

We offer a wide variety of workshops covering many techniques, interests, and skill levels.  Classes/workshops give you the opportunity to practice in a safe environment where everyone is welcome.

 

Enjoy the process! 

Woodworking is like any other craft or skill; its best to take your time and be patient with yourself.  If you were learning a new language you wouldn't expect to be fluent after a couple weeks; so take your time, and have fun!

Suggested Curriculums.

If you are looking to make something specific and you need some help, consider Private Lessons.  

Safety First

Whether you want to become a member or take classes, the first step is to take Safety Orientation.  We run 2-3 Safety Orientations per week; they tend to fill up about a week in advance.  To reserve a spot check out the class schedule.

Membership

CW members have access to professional grade equipment and bench space needed to create woodworking projects.  

 

All CW members are expected to work independently, however, if you need help setting up a cut you have never made before, there is always someone to help.

 

Classes/Workshops

(membership not required)

If you would like to brush up on your skills or need a recap of what you learned in high school shop or even if you do not have any woodworking experience then check out our classes.  From beginner to advanced we're confident you will find something worth your while.  If you are looking for something different please let us know.  

 

 

Private Lessons

Need help figuring out a design?  Want to create a custom piece?  Consider taking private lessons.  Sometimes one-on-one training is exactly what you need to accomplish your goals.  Gain the experience and confidence needed to bring your ideas to reality.

 

Private Lessons are $80/Hr.  If you have a project in mind, send us an email with pictures/drawings of what you would llike to build.  Let us know your skill level and experience, and we will give you an estimate for hours and cost.
