New Class Announcement

We are excited to announce a new class: Workbench in a Box. This class was designed for our students that live in an apartment or have limited space to work. The workbench is 36 inches high x 32 inches wide and 22 inched deep. It will conveniently fold up into a box about 32 inches x 22 inches x 9 inches. It can be moved anywhere with relative ease. The holes in the top accommodate bench dogs that will allow clamping along the top of the bench. The slots are used with clamps to provide more clamping options. The class date will be announce soon.

Guess Who is Coming Back!

  1. After a loooong time shut in Michael Fortune can come out to play again. We are trying to play it safe so his first class is scheduled for July, hopefully, all travel restrictions will be lifted by then. The first classes will be:
  • His stunning Oval Table
  • Machine-made Dovetails
  • Mastering the Bandsaw

Then in November, we are planning his class: Mastering the Curve, if November is not possible we will move this class to December. Then also in  December, Michael will teach our popular Introduction to Woodworking class. Stay tuned for more details.
