Both Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores in the Houston area – Houston and Spring – will be offering hands-on, “Make & Take” project classes throughout April. Projects include: a wooden tote, a 4-in-1 screwdriver, a custom sign and a custom turned bowl. Class size is limited to as few as three participants and will cost $15 to $35 with all materials included. Instruction will be provided by Rockler’s expert woodworkers and teachers so no experience or tools are needed.
Participants can sign up for any or all of the classes and they’ll leave with a handcrafted 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.
Each class will last 2 to 3 hours and will focus on a single project. Only 3 to 6 participants per class – use the store link below to sign up:
