Courses for Beginning to Advanced Woodworkers

"Foundation" classes are 5-day or longer classes that provide and overview of a particular subject and greater opportunity to practice the skills being taught.

Classes are listed in more than one category when the content of the class includes significant amounts of both topics. Please see individual class descriptions for details.
