Learn to use woodworking tools safely, efficiently and with precision while you build one or more projects of your own design. The pictures show just a few of the possibilities, which also might range from a cutting board or a cell phone amplifier to a shoe organizer or a jewelry holder. Or you could make a toy to give to a child. If you don't have an idea for your project, don't worry: We'll provide ideas to get your creative juices going.

This class will focus on hand tools and a couple of portable power tools, such as a cordless drill and a jigsaw. You will learn how to "read" a board to choose the best places to cut specific parts, how to use measuring and marking tools, how to choose and use the appropriate saw to cut out parts, how to smooth the parts, how to assemble pieces, and more. This isn't an "assemble-a-kit"  class. You will be cutting, planning, gluing and finishing — and, we hope, getting excited about woodworking.


  • This class is for youth 10-14 years old.
  • To register your youth, please put in the "First Name" field your first name then in parenthesis put the youth's first and last name (if different than yours). The email address you register with is where all reminders will be sent.

  • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Students and instructors will be required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, maintain a distance of six feet between individuals, and stay home if they are sick.  More details can be found here.
  • Wear close-toed shoes, avoid loose clothing and dangling jewelry, and tie back long hair. Please bring your own safety glasses, which you can purchase at a local hardware store or lumberyard. If you need a smaller size than what is commonly available, online sources sell youth-size safety glasses. Glasses must be certified to ANSI Standard Z87 or the equivalent European Union Standard EN 166.
