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!



Dovetail members must schedule shop time in advance. We are busier than ever, so this is how we manage the number of people in the shop at any given time.

Book Your Time Slot

Please call or email in advance if you wish to come in for a tour, consultation, or milling and repair services.

Face coverings are required for everyone on the premises.

Masks On



We are thrilled to be adding in-person classes back to the lineup, including Shop Orientations. Visit the class calendar for details and registration. 



Please consider a donation to our GoFundMe campaign to help us make up for lost revenue during the shutdown and come back strong after quarantine. Thank you!

How It Works

Woodworking CLASSES are open to all, no membership required. Most are suitable for beginners and do not require a separate orientation.

MEMBERSHIP allows you to use the shop and tools for your own projects during open shop hours. Shop Orientation course is required; sign up on the Classes page. Members also enjoy discounts on classes and lumber purchases.

PUNCH CARDS provide prepaid hours to use the shop, which never expire. A great alternative to membership if you need only occasional access. Shop Orientation course required.

Gift Cards available

Give the gift of woodworking with a Gift Card, good for class enrollment or the purchase of a membership or punch card.


Redeeming a gift card?

Please call 505-926-1693 or email us to redeem your card for a class or a membership. Gift cards are not compatible with our online registration system at this time, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
