Who we are... What we do
We teach “woodworking” We are a group of passionate woodworkers who believe that passing on the craft is our mission. The craft of woodworking has been dwindling for many years. Evidence the number of high school schools that have closed their woodshops in recent years. In Arizona, this is particularly troubling.
Many of our students are hobbyists and some are aspiring professionals and we welcome all.
We offer classes beginning with fundamental hand skills. Using hand tools to develop the skills of controlling the tools to understand the behavior of the wood. The students learn marking out, joinery, assembly, design principles, and more.
In Fundamentals II students progress to power tools as well as learning the integration with hand tools. Here are completed benches that are the project for this class
