Weekend With WOOD 2018
North America’s Premiere Woodworking Educational Event
May 17-20, 2018
Weekend With WOOD is back for its sixth year, and it’s bigger and better than ever with new classes and instructors. Join us in our classrooms and shops in Des Moines, Iowa, to sharpen your woodworking chops and talk shop with fellow woodworkers from all over the country. You’ll learn techniques, tips, and tricks from the best woodworkers in the business. Meet the masters who will teach you at Weekend With WOOD.
Customize your own class schedule from nearly 50 topics for all skill levels: cabinetmaking, project design, joinery, hand- and power-tool skills, finishing, turning, and more. To encourage student/teacher interaction, class sizes are purposely limited. Upon purchase, you will be directed to download an information packet that includes instructions for reserving your classes. Sessions will be held right where WE make sawdust: the shop and offices at WOOD magazine’s world headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa. Ample seating and large video screens in each class help you see the tiniest details of each presentation.
