Carpentry

"When I was 18, I had my first taste of building and over the years my love of carpentry has grown.  Now, with 25 years of carpentry experience, I truly believe that anyone can learn to become a builder. It just takes a nurturing place to learn, a safe place to ask questions, and a mentor to give you the tricks of the trade.  We are here to be all those things for you, so put on a tool belt, sharpen your pencil, and let's get building!" Lara

Intro to Carpentry

Learn carpentry basics in a safe and supportive environment!  This class teaches all the basics of carpentry, from choosing the right wood for a project to using proper techniques with a hand saw and circular saw.  The course culminates in each student using the acquired skills to build a stacking pair of saw horses. You will leave with a sense of empowerment and knowledge and with the confidence, skills, and language to be a self sufficient builder!

"Amazing! I learned so much- my newfound confidence and familiarity with these tools and skills is just incredible.  It was perfectly paced and a great combination of hands on learning and listening.  I am very eager to experiment at home and learn more."
