What You'll Do

Anyone can design, cut, and assemble something special out of wood. That's what Artifex Woodwork owners Doug Woodville and Flavio Gallo believe, and they prove it during a workshop that teaches your group how to transform a redwood fence board into a wine rack. The woodworkers walk you through cutting pieces of wood using a handsaw and a router, before you assemble a wine rack that can hold four bottles and glasses.

  • Woodcutting
    Make the necessary cuts on your board using handsaws and a router with a spiral bit

  • Assembly
    Assemble the wine rack with a staple gun or a hammer and nails, then take the creation home and mount it on a wall

Woodworkers

Since childhood, Doug Woodville has channeled creativity through his hands. He worked on bicycles as a kid, before moving on to hot rods alongside his dad. Later, Doug applied his skills in metalworking to a new medium: woodworking.

It all started in a high school wood shop class for Flavio Gallo. He discovered an affinity for woodworking under the tutelage of teacher Don Augstein, who took on Flavio as an apprentice. Flavio eventually opened up his own shop, and now runs Artifex Woodwork alongside Doug Woodville.
