Woodworking For Amish Hipsters


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

You dress like you're Amish even though you're not (it's just your style, and that's cool, man). So natually everyone just ASSUMES that you are a talented and capable woodworker. Well here's your opportunity to actually learn how to use woodworking tools so you can avoid feeling embarassed when people at your local makerspace see you using a chisel upside-down, or using your girlfriend's bodyweight to hold a board in place while you cut it in half.

In this class, we will go over useful info such as where wood comes from, what it can be used for, and how to use basic tools such as a measuring tape, a hammer, and if we have time, even a drill. Coffee provided by some coffee shop that Starbucks just moved in across the street from. Hope you can join us! (Oh, and April fools!)

Seriously though, Hammerspace is seeking a REAL woodworking expert who would be interested in teaching woodworking classes in our workshop. Here's how it works... You propose your class idea(s) to us. If we approve it, we will get your class on the calendar, promote it, and take class sign ups and payment for you. In exchange, we take 33% of the total dollar amount you've generated from the sign ups. In other words, no deposit for using our facility to teach a class! So if only one or two people show up, you're not out a huge deposit. Email, call, or come by HammerSpace if interested.
