The Wood Shop Workers Co-op offers DIY Shop Classes which focus on the design, construction and finishing of handcrafted reclaimed wood furniture and home decor items.
Currently we offer a DIY Trunk or Table Session 4 dates per month on a Saturday or a Sunday. The Spring holds much promise for new subjects and new dates, so keep an eye on our EventBrite registration page for new classes.
About the DIY Shop Class Sessions
In one 8-hour day, you will construct from start to finish your own reclaimed wood furniture or home decor item. Each DIY Shop Class Session has a theme such as a table, trunk, garden box etc that you will get to design to your specifications based on design options we provide.
We will help you build your project from start to finish using pieces that have been prepared for you according to your preferences and submitted design.
Once you have completed your registration we will work with you to plan what you would like to build, choosing a style, height, base and finishing preference.
With an expert carpenter on hand, learn how to use tools such as a finishing nailer, cordless drill and screw gun, pipe clamps, belt sander, orbital sander, and numerous other hand tools. No experience required.
Gain hands-on knowledge about wood species and woodworking techniques while getting the satisfaction of making your own piece of furniture
Learn about upcycling techniques and get tips on other ways you can integrate the ethics of reuse into your life.
Walk out the door with your very own custom-built surface, or have us deliver it later in the same week.
