About Us

Dovetail Community Workshop offers woodworking classes for all skill levels, and memberships and punch cards to use the shop for your own projects.

Our vision is for members to share space, tools, & expertise to create things they love, in a community of makers. Nothing is more satisfying than saying, “I made that.” Sign up for our newsletter to get updates on our progress, class enrollment and other announcements.

Why Dovetail?

Dovetail means “to come together.” It’s a space for our creative community to gather, connect, and learn from each other. Many of our classes are designed to help newcomers learn to navigate the machines and build confidence in their skills. You’ll be amazed at what you can do!

The makerspace concept is booming all over the U.S. Here are just a few of the workshops that inspire us:

Founder: Erin O’Donnell

Erin is a community builder, making the leap from the world of communications and social media to entrepreneurship. Erin first envisioned creating a community workshop while working as a journalist, interviewing small business owners. She had just completed her first furniture refinishing project when she hit on the idea of creating a space for people to build their own projects, with the help and support of a creative community. Beginning in 2015, Erin built a team of expert woodworkers and artisans to bring this vision to Albuquerque.

Erin loves to see old items repurposed and upcycled, because she herself is repurposing her skills into a second career. She believes everyone, and everything, has a second act in them.
