What you'll do
We will meet in TJ's home-based shop where you'll learn the basics of woodworking. Together, under TJ's guidance, our group will create hand-crafted coasters out of reclaimed wood and scrap wood from his furniture business, TJ's Fine Furniture. While working you will get a unique perspective on what it takes to work with wood. Your piece will be essentially complete at the end of the experience, but it'll need some extra lacquer and time to dry, so you'll have the choice to either take home a substantially similar product or have yours shipped to you a few days later. Each participant will receive a set of 2 coasters as part of the experience.
Bottled water I'll provide bottled water. Feel free to bring anything else to drink. be sure it's in a covered mug or cup…
All equipment provided I will provide all the tools we will use including planer, router, saw, and sander.
TJ fell in love with woodworking when he happened into an intro to shop class in high school. While studying engineering in college, he continued to pursue his craft, ultimately creating complicated bookshelves, timeless tables, and unique wine racks. Pushing forty these days, he teaches HS math and science, works on his house, brews beer, and is active in the Portland juggling scene.

Where you'll be
TJ has been woodworking since he was a kid, so he converted his garage to a home-based woodworking studio. He's currently in the process of renovating his more than 100-year-old home, so you'll see some of that process as well. His home showcases much of his hand-crafted furniture, so come inside!
