Working with Live Edge Slabs for Beginners 




Want to start creating furniture with live edge slabs, but don’t know where to start? 


This six-session course  - with master live edge artist Andrew Moore - will introduce you to the magic of working with gorgeous slabs, right off the log.  Andrew will be teaching pertinent techniques including slab preparation, epoxy repair of cracks and checks, flattening and sanding, and leg attachment. Once your slab is stabilized, prepped and finished, we’ll add some legs and create a one-of-a-kind bench, coffee or sofa table or whatever your imagination can envision!

Students are responsible for purchasing their own slabs, and Andrew’s shop - Reclaimed Secrets  - is offering a 15% discount with this coupon. Print it off and start shopping!




Due to the length of drying times for epoxy, this class will meet on a Thursday and Friday night during the second week, so that all epoxy will be cured efficiently and we can get down to business with our slabs. That means the first week we’ll meet Thursday, but during the second week - we will meet on Thursday and Friday. Check the dates below for clarification.




This is a class for true beginners; students are encourage to choose a project within their own capability.  Basic Woodworking is a prerequisite.

Tuition: $250

Supplies: $60  - includes epoxies, all sanding supplies, and shop materials. Danish oil is also included for finishing your table, but if you prefer a different finish, you will be responsible for supplying that finish.

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.
