Allied Woodshop provides residents with bench space and access to a suite of machines and tools geared toward fine furniture making in Downtown Los Angeles. The shop attracts select professional woodworkers who are committed to design and to craft, and we welcome experienced woodworkers at any stage in their career. We emphasize handwork, sensitivity toward material, and attention to detail.
Each resident has dedicated bench space and access to all tools. Large, west facing windows provide abundant natural light throughout the shop and a view of the Downtown Los Angeles skyline. All large tools are vintage cast iron - in excellent condition and well maintained - the table saws are Sawstops, and all handheld power tools are Festool.
