Everybody starts woodworking as a complete novice. Introduction to Woodworking is the first step toward making woodworking a part of your life. You never know, it may become a passion. This class puts you to work right away learning about tools and materials and how to use them. You will walk away with your first project too. This course is held in a professional-grade woodshop and led by a woodworking expert. You will be using jointers, planers, bandsaws, router tables, and sanders. In addition, you will create a gorgeous 8"× 12" hardwood cutting board of your own. Come and have fun in this full shop exploration!

NOTE: There is a $20 materials charge for walnut and/or maple payable to the Willard Brothers instructor on the first night of class. Choice of exotic hardwoods for your project will cost extra. Students should bring their own eye and ear protection. Class is conducted at a professional woodworking shop 2.5 miles from the Costco located on Quaker Bridge Road. (Willard Brothers Woodcutters, 300 Basin Road, Hamilton Township, NJ).

Everyone must wear a KN95 mask at all times, and hearing protection and goggles/glasses are recommended. Hand sanitizers and a KN95 mask will be provided for you that you must bring back for your second class. We will not be providing masks for your second session. Please bring a Ziploc bag or something to put your mask in after class so you can reuse it for the next one.
