Future Plans

In the spring we will be repeating some of these workshops and adding new ones such as milling your own lumber, veneering, vacuum pressing, intense joinery, two day intense design workshops, and two day small project workshops.

We are also very eager to consider any suggestions any of our students may have for other topics. A free Ebanista t-shirt to anyone who’s idea gets used.
