Private instruction is an excellent opportunity to improve your knowledge and experience of woodworking tools and techniques. Our instructors will work with you one-on-one on anything from project design, to material selection, milling, joining, and finishing.
Please begin by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org before you purchase private instruction hours. Let us know what you would like to learn or build, send us inspiration photos, and tell us what your experience level is. With that information, we can estimate the number of hours your project will take and pair you with an instructor.
From there, you and your instructor will start with a one-hour planning session. This can be done by phone or in-person. You'll then meet up in the shop to begin on your project. There is a three-hour minimum per session for private instruction, which allows us to make substantial progress on your project. Private Instruction is $125 an hour.

Private instruction can be refunded up to three months after purchase, minus a $50 registration fee, if it has not already been scheduled or completed. We require one week's advance notice to reschedule any previously scheduled hours, and we are only able to accommodate one change request. There are no refunds or rescheduling for private instruction hours that are scheduled and not attended.
