In our Engraved Keepsake Box class, you’ll start with a solid piece of hardwood and learn all of the milling, joining, and engraving techniques necessary to create this incredible one-of-a-kind piece that you’ll treasure for years to come.

Wood Furniture

There is nothing more classic and versatile than hand-crafted wood furniture. If you have just moved into your first place or you are redecorating, wouldn’t it be awesome to have a piece that you created yourself? We offer a couple of different furniture making classes in which you can make something as simple as a cross-leg side table or as complex as a live-edge side table with bowties and colored epoxy. Either way, your custom piece of wood furniture is sure to be a conversation starter!
