Florida Woodworking School

One of the great things we get to do here is share the knowledge of woodworking so, if you have always wanted to try woodworking but didn’t know where to begin, this may be the path for you. We teach hands-on woodworking classes, customized to your specific needs. Your current knowledge, abilities and goals are combined with practical, achievable projects to help you develop your woodworking skills.

Our woodworking classes are located in a big, beautiful light-filled workshop in a renovated industrial building from the 1920’s, the instructors are not just amazing woodworkers but they are good teachers and the atmosphere is creative and friendly.

Really Made a Difference

The emphasis on safety, control and thinking ahead really made a difference to my approach.  Broke a lot of bad habits.

The patience of the instructors is wonderful, I’m looking forward to the my next class.

Well Articulated

(The class was)…holistic, focused on safety, very well articulated.  The things that really made it work were ability to see and use lots of different tools, Sally (dog), the wonderful shop, the instruction for tool use.


Great Class!

Thanks for a great class!  It was just what I was hoping for!  Your complete coverage of the details of the process of idea generation, sketching, construction drawing, cutlist prep, etc. all the way through final stages of finishing was excellent.  I really appreciated your focus on safety and your watchful eye when we were using the power tools.  I especially appreciated your methodology with feeding stock through the table saw.  I am going to diligently practice that in my own shop.  As I said when I was there, I need to get more adept at being precise in my measurements and setup to make cuts and your instruction in that was perfect.

Exceeded Expectations

I enjoyed the class and especially the hands on nature of the experience.  There was a lot of material to cover, but I feel the pace was not too much.  It would have been nice to have more time to repeat some of the projects for memory purposes.  The homework does help reinforce some of the lecture material.  Overall this was a rewarding class and opened my eyes to what I think will become a wonderful experience in creating my own pieces.
