Memberships and Punch Cards are available to use the shop for your own projects. It's a great way to use what you learn in class. A one-time Safety Orientation class is required.
Give the gift of woodworking with a Gift Card, good for class enrollment or the purchase of a membership or punch card.
NEED MORE SPACE?
Individual studio spaces also are available for rent within the 5,000-square-foot building. Please contact us for information.
Orientation is required for members and punch card holders but not for individual classes. You can choose either basic, for novices, or advanced orientation, for those who can demonstrate a good working knowledge of basic tools. This will certify you to use more advanced equipment such as the planer, jointer and cabinet saw. Orientation fees are refunded or credited to your account when you activate a monthly membership or a 10-hour punch card.
Why Can't I Just Drop In?
Dovetail is an industrial space, so we can't emphasize safety enough. Find out why a membership model offers you the safest experience.
