Houston Area Woodworking Stores Offer ‘Make & Take’ Classes Throughout October Participants Complete a Small Project in Just a Few Hours

Houston, TX –

To jumpstart the Fall project and gift-making season, both Rockler Woodworking and Hardware in Houston – Houston and Spring – will be offering hands-on, “Make & Take” project classes throughout October. Make-and-Take class participants can learn basic woodworking skills while handcrafting items for their own use or to give as gifts and will build a complete project in just a few hours. Each class size is limited to as few as three participants and will cost $50.00 with all materials included. Instruction will be provided by Rockler’s expert woodworkers and teachers so no experience or tools are needed.

Projects include: a turned pen; a cribbage board; a whiskey barrel stave candle holder; and a custom knife. Participants can sign up for any or all of the classes and they’ll leave with a completed project after each class. Plans, overview videos and materials will also be available online for those who want to make the projects on their own.

The “Make & Take” class series is especially well-suited for beginners or those with limited woodworking experience. Class size is limited so that attendees have access to as much guidance and instruction as needed.

Children under the age of 18 are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must sign a waiver. Each class will last 2 to 3 hours and will focus on a single project.

Only 3 to 6 participants per class – click on the store link below to sign up now:
