One on One Instruction
We offer private or small group (friends and/or family) classes for woodworkers of any level age 16 and older. You can start with a simple project like the Tool Tote above (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 your own workbench. Our approach is based in hand tools, with some power tools used to help move things along.
DIY with Codfish Park Design
This is a Hope Chest that a student made for their child’s room. It’s based on the medieval Six-Board Chest and is made from solid Poplar with wrought iron hinges and latex paint (Did you know this color is the international color for optimism?). We helped them work out the design and proportion on paper, select and source the materials, and then build the chest. In all, the project took six hours of shop instruction time ($75/hr.), four hours of independent shop time ($25/hr.), and another fours hours of sanding and painting at their home. The materials cost was around $125.
