In our spacious wood & lathe studios, you can explore the gamut of woodworking – furniture, turning, bowl turning, carving, box making, classic weapons, chair caning and more. Sawtooth woodworking instructors bring a combined 100 years’ experience to the workbench, a knowledge base openly shared with all students. Our classes explore traditional woodcraft and as well as modern building techniques, from hand-cut joinery, live-edge furniture, and decorative woodturning. Open Studio hours and private instruction are available as well.
