Beginner Classes

What will I learn in the beginner class?

You will learn to safely use the table saw, jointer, planer, miter saw and router to build either a small table or small bookcase. You will learn the process of gluing up panels to look like one board. Then, you will learn a simple method of joinery that will allow you to build many other projects. The lessons learned in the beginner class are the most important lessons for all of your next projects. We learn how these machines work together to make a board square and straight. At the end, we learn how to finish the project to look professional with little effort. You will do the final finish at home, but we discuss how to make it look great with stain and top coat.

Where and when are the beginner classes?

Beginner classes are offered once per month and the dates are listed on the calendar at the bottom of this page or click here. The beginner class is a two-day class from 9-1 both Saturday and Sunday. The main location for this class is 2553 S Colorado, Denver. I also teach a one-day beginner class occasionally in Berthoud, Colorado. Check calendar for dates or give me a call at 303-902-8856.

Is it safe?

Yes, woodworking can be a very safe hobby if you have quality instruction. I have been teaching this beginner class for over 17 years and I have NEVER had any significant injury in this class.

Are there any other fees?

NO, the class fee for the table class is 155.00 and the bookcase is 175.00. Everything is included. No surprise fees.

Can I get a Gift Certificates?

Yes, I do! You can purchase any class for your wife, husband, or friend and relax because it will never expire, and they can use the gift certificate for any class. You can purchase one class and if they decide they would rather take a different class, that is no problem. The money is transferable. I can also send you an electronic certificate for them upon request.

Intermediate Class

What will I learn in the intermediate class?

The intermediate class is a student directed class. In other words, you decide what you want to make and that is what we do as a team. We can guide you from design to completion. Some people already know what they want to make and some just want to learn skills. I have a great project for those just wanting to learn skills where you can learn dovetails, mortise and tenon, curves, and tapers in a small project that will not cost much for materials. Popular projects in this class are jewelry boxes, butcher blocks, coffee tables, dining tables, larger bookshelves, and cabinets. You are only limited by your imagination.

Are there any other fees?

Yes, you will be responsible for purchasing your own materials and bringing them to the shop. You are welcome to leave materials at the shop, within reason, and if you are attending class each week.

Where, when and how much are intermediate classes?

This class is taught at 2555 S Santa Fe, Denver every Wednesday evening from 6-9. Depending on enrollment, we open Monday evenings from 6-9. The cool thing about this class is you attend class when your available. It is really just shop time with instructors present to help you with your projects. The classes never expire. The fee for the intermediate class is 199.00 for 4 classes to use at your convenience.

Can I buy a gift certificate?

Yes, you can purchase a class and the recipient can use the certificate for any class they like.
