The place to learn and do woodworking in Albuquerque!

Dovetail Community Workshop offers woodworking classes and memberships to use a fully equipped wood shop in a safe, clean, encouraging community environment.

At Dovetail, do-it-yourself doesn't have to mean do it alone. Welcome!

How It Works

Our woodworking CLASSES are open to all, no membership required. Most are suitable for beginners. Some do have age restrictions. Most classes do not require a separate orientation.

MEMBERSHIP allows you to use the shop and tools for your own projects during open shop hours. A one-time Shop Orientation course is required for membership; sign up on the Classes page. We have several tiers and options for membership. Members also enjoy discounts on class enrollments and lumber purchases.

PUNCH CARDS are an alternative to a monthly or annual membership. You may prepay for a certain number of hours to use the shop, which never expire. Punch Card users must complete orientation.

Why Can't I Just Drop In?

Dovetail is an industrial space, so we can't emphasize safety enough. Woodworking is not hard to learn, but it takes time to develop confidence and skill with the tools before you're ready to take on more advanced projects.

Find out why a membership model offers you the safest experience.
