Class sizes are purposely limited to encourage student/teacher interaction. Upon purchase, you will be directed to download an information packet that includes instructions for reserving your classes.

Weekend with Wood

<p>The last time I attended was 2014. With next May is open, I signed up for 2017. The sessions were informative and the swag bag was great. Also won a set of chisels. The only downside was that I was so inspired I went out and purchased more tools including a lathe. Life could be worse.</p>

Napervill, IL

Outstanding weekend.

  • The best.
  • That we have to wait 8 months
<p>If you go to this weekend, and do not walk away with at least six processes that you cannot wait to try them in you shop, then you should check your pulse.</p><p>The staff gives us many hours and then spends a weekend away from their familes and being the host and teachers of a bunch of wood workers is a big thing. Hats off.</p>
