6-day class (can be weekends by arrangement), includes all materials.

Dan's Classes: Isn't it time you got back to working with your hands?
Every class is hands-on, and always a good time. 

Whether young (7+) or old, beginner or advanced woodworker, you will leave these classes having made new friends, and re-connected with 
      the power of working with wood. Not to mention, you'll go home with your new creation!
