There are a lot of things you can build at home with just a few tools. In this class, you'll learn how to use the most common household power tools that can all be easily packed away at the end of your project. Our DIY expert, Lisa, and fine carpenter, Brandon, will show you all the basics while guiding you through your own build. You'll even go home with a pair of folding sawhorses to help with your future DIY projects!

Tools used in this class:

  • Circular saw
  • Drill / driver / impact driver
  • Jigsaw
  • Orbital Sander
  • Measuring, marking, and clamping tools

All materials and supplies are included. Class size is limited to 8 students.

Please note, it is critical that students arrive on time. We cannot allow students who have missed instruction to join the class late. This is a serious safety concern, and we appreciate your understanding.
