How It Works

We work directly with local woodworking instructors to create a unique, classic and timeless course.

The course involves working in a project that was designed for learning from the get go. At each step of the way you'll be exposed to basic woodworking techniques and will practice your hands-on skills.

Discovery Now

Discover the relaxing effects of working with your hands

Working with hand tools is an extremely cathartic experience. When you make things over and over again - You develop a strong relationship with what you’re making. Each marking and each shaving leads the way to the next one, which has extremely unwinding effects.

Learn traditional woodworking skills

This project was designed to guide our participants through a woodworking journey. Each step of the project involves traditional woodworking techniques such as measuring and marking, making a lap joint from scratch, mortise and tenon joint from scratch, hand planning, finishing, and others!

Connect with others

Being a maker is all about creating meaningful connections, When working on your project, you’ll be able to meet other likeminded people in our platform.
