Just took orientation class with the owner Erin, and I was impressed by the facilities, professionalism of the staff, and all of the possibilities! Can't wait to take a class on wood-turning or finishing.

I took the wood turning class with Don and it was really an amazing experience. It was a very small class, only three of us! We all had a ton of time actually working on the lathe. Don is a true artist and was really wonderful to work with. The whole workshop is awesome and I plan on going to more classes.

I love this place. If you're experienced or just a noob, Dovetail Community Workshop is a great place to learn and work. Lots of space and good folks all around.

Nicole T., Google

It wasn’t has hard or intimidating as it originally seemed. Erin was so good with direction and helping me navigate large power tools! I came out of a Dovetail session extremely empowered and ready for more!!!!!
