Oh my god it was amazing; we had such a fun time. Perfect surprise birthday gift. Our teacher was so fun and patient with us, even when we ran 30 minutes over time. Couldn’t recommend enough (but do the date night deal if you can so you get pizza and wine).

Such an enjoyable and informative course. I couldn't think of a better way to get an insight into woodworking and you leave with your very own oak side table!

Class was incredible, just like an episode of forged in fire. The instructors were knowledgeable and helpful and we had a great time. My arm hurt afterward from all that hammering, but it was sooo worth it!

Great class led by knowledgeable Arlene with support, mostly comedic, from Jeff. Small size, so plenty of time to ask questions and get help, but nice that you are making the board by yourself. Like drivers ed, the skateboard carpentry edition, they let you “drive” using all of these intense tools, but they are next to you and that removes any intimidation factor. Turning a wooden plank into a beautiful, rideable skateboard, in a few hours, was a bit of magic.

This class was phenomenal! I LOVE my bag. The instructor Will was helpful and made the class fun and the owner Chris was so welcoming and personable. 1000% everyone should take this class for their own custom leather tote bag. I’m obsessed with mine!

This class was so much fun! It's a lot of work, but you'll make a beautiful, sharp kitchen knife with hard steel (so it should theoretically be sharp for a while). The instructor was enthusiastic and friendly, and taught us a lot as absolute beginners. Would recommend.
