Woodworking for the Home-Based Enthusiast

Enrich your life with a creative and useful hobby. Laney Wood Tech offers classes for beginners and intermediate-level amateurs. Courses are offered in the afternoon, evenings and weekends.

Classes are small and emphasize safety as well as technique and procedure. Both traditional and contemporary woodworking skills are taught in a hands-on, project-based format.

Our staff of professional instructors have a wide range of woodworking experience and are able to focus on the individual needs of their students.
