Hey guys this post goes out in particular to anybody living in Long Island, but also to anyone who just can’t find a local way of taking woodwork classes…
I’ve been living in Long Island for a year, building custom stuff on the north shore, and I’m always looking for new things to learn… Of course we can do it the hard way (on our own) but it would be nice to benefit from someone else’s experience…
My question is if anyone knows of some real classes in Long Island, even Into Brooklyn or Queens?

And for the subject matter of my next thought, I’m considering teaching a Basic Woodwork and Safety class at my shop. I’ve been through 3 schools for carpentry, cabinetry and furniture and as a successful shop owner I’d like to pass on what I know and who wouldnt want another safety class?

Please chime in with your thoughts!

I’m on the north shore myself. I’m also curious of any woodworking shops. Also of any places to buy rough-cut I don’t know about.

Hi there. I’m on the North Shore of Long Island and have been looking for a mentor in wood work. Boces was waaaaaaaaaaaaay too expensive. The Basic Class went from $345 to over $600. I’m interested in learning how to build basic wood shop tables, Cold Frames for starting seeds, Chicken Coups and Small wood sheds. zesauce@hotmaiil.com Today is October 6 2012 thanks.

I am also interested in joining/learning from such a class in Long Island. I am a complete newbie but love wood. (Who doesn’t?) I actually have a bunch of machines that I need to learn how use properly.

Im not really teaching classes, but I have a small woodworking shop that sits empty far too often. If someone wants to get together to build a small project, I wouldnt mind sharing the space. Send me a PM to discuss

I am too in nearby Eastern Queens, just off Nassau County, and I was looking for either a ‘community workshop’ or a “makerspace’ where tools are available, looking for expertise, chat and access to tools I cant squeeze into my basement.

The nearest I know of, after extensive searching is in Brooklyn: http://www.makeville.com/index.htm. I did take a class there once, a bit of a trip, even to Queens. It was worth the effort, I learned a lot.

Hi. It’s been about 2 years since this thread started… but is anyone still thinking of hosting their own beginners woodworking class. I’d be more than interested. I’ve been searching, and it seems like the only one that’s still really open is Makeville…
