Here's a tentative 2017 schedule....

Thanks for your interest in the classes offered at Wood It Is!  

Without further ado...





Without you - the curious, creative mind, the school wouldn't have the success that is has achieved. Over the years, thousands of people have taken classes and gone on to do big things with their woodworking - opening small businesses, obtaining jobs in the woodworking field, or simply making beautiful pieces for their own home. Whatever your motivation and skill level, know this - you can achieve quick and rewarding results by taking a class with us.

So... here is the tentative 2017 schedule. THESE CLASSES ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR RESISTRATION YET, but should be open around mid-November. When they are posted, there will be links here to take you to the registration sites. 

FAQ
 (That's Frequently Asked Questions, in case you didn't know that)....


  • Almost all classes a six sessions long; we meet once a week for six weeks. The tuition is $250 for roughly 20 hours of instruction. Materials and supplies are extra, and depend on the class in which you are enrolled. For example, the materials for the Basic Woodworking class are $95. A Tablemaking or BookCase class supply fee might run around $40-50 for things like adhesives, sandpaper, fasteners, hardware, finishes, and so on, but students would be expected to supply their own lumber.
  • Classes start roughly every other month. That's due to the length of the classes (usually six weeks) and that the woodshop and tools need maintenance, cleaning and set-up for the upcoming session.  
  • Classes are deliberately kept small, so that each student receives the attention that he or she deserves. That means that these classes can be difficult to enroll in. If you see an opening in a class, and you're serious about taking it - you might want to enroll sooner than later. It sometimes takes months to get into a class you want to take. 
  • Everyone must take the Basic Woodworking course in order to work at the school. (It is the pre-requsiste course for everything we offer.) It serves much as a safety course and a woodshop orientation course, critical for knowing where everything is located in our shop, and for learning how to check each tool for proper set-up and usage.) Once you've completed that class, you're free to rent time on the weekends during Open Shop Saturdays, where you have full access to the complete line of equipment, including planers, table and panel saws, jointers, and a nice assortment of Festool tools. You'll also receive mentorship and guidance for the projects in which you are building. 

We do it all... what's your next project?

From small projects... 


to large pieces.
