Classes

 

Codfish Park Design

Codfish Park Design offers private or small group (friends and/or family) classes for woodworkers of any level age 16 and older. Beginners can start with a simple project like a Classic Tool Tote (two hours shop instruction time and materials - $175) and then move on to more complex projects like a Mallet, a Sliding Top Toolbox, a Saw Bench, or even their own workbench. Our approach is based in hand tools, with some power tools used to help move things along.
