Ebanista School of Fine Woodworking in Seattle, WA

Our Purpose

The Ebanista School of Fine Woodworking was founded to bring a school capable of offering the highest level of instruction in the design and making of inspired furniture to the Pacific Northwest. Those skills, once attained, will afford any student the foundation to expand into limitless other areas of interest, such as cabinetmaking, instrument making, boatbuilding, fine carpentry, and even the ability to carry design skills and precision into vastly different disciplines.

The instructors, all specialists in certain aspects of this work, are dedicated and experienced. Each brings a minimum of 40 years experience as a professional woodworker. We are all excited to pass on our knowledge to a new generation, of all ages, of designers and makers.

Ebanista is located in the Greenlake area of Seattle in the century-old workshop of the Vitamilk dairy. It is fully equipped and houses both a school and a professional furniture studio. Classes begin in the fall of 2018.  

Ebanista was founded as an answer to so many requests over the years for a school of this caliber. Class size will be intentionally limited to foster maximum attention on students. You are encouraged to find your place early.

Ebanista in Spanish means “fine woodworker”. Y tanto.
