Thinking of stopping in to check out the shop?

Studio: Wood It Is does not have shop front with sales counter. Based in an industrial warehouse, our focus is on teaching woodworking classes, usually at night, so our hours during the day will vary.


The cabinet-building side of the business is small, with many commitments, so we may not be here if you turn up un-announced. We’re happy to have people stop in with small projects, but don’t be disappointed if the doors are locked and no one is around; we might be off to the lumberyard or hardware store, so it’s best to call ahead, to ensure someone is available to meet you.

BASIC WOODWORKING



Learn how to set up, use, and maintain all major woodworking tools including the table saw, jointer, planer, drill press, band saw, and a variety of stationary sanders. Classes meet in a well-equipped woodshop, featuring three SawStop table saws, two jointers, two planers, and much more. Participants complete three projects designed to teach practical use of the tools. Upon completion, feel confident enough to not only use all of these tools, but to make wise purchases of your own tools. Due to safety instruction, participation in the first session is required for students to continue with the course. Students will need to pay $120 for materials at the first class session.
