Burnished to a mature patina through 32 years of operation, Midwest Woodworkers and its team of instructors hone technical skills and channel creative energy among students of all experience levels with a conglomeration of woodworking classes.

Pen Turning 1 sessions spin humble blocks into monogram-worthy scribblers, and router basics classes carve corners and curves into wood. Whittle away at basswood in carving-figurines courses, or restore youthful glow to aged grains with architectural-carving-inspired floral and leaf etchings. Begin projects more efficiently with a slash course in sharpening, then bring them to spine-tingling conclusions with a tasteful application of veneer and inlay or finishing.
A member of the Green Building Initiative and a Building Performance Institute-accredited organization, USA Insulation keeps home inhabitants at a comfortable temperature as they go about their daily lives. The service process commences when a trained energy consultant visits the home to inspect the building for potential areas of improvement, such as an under-insulated attic or a basement that refuses to wear socks. He then makes recommendations to increase the home's R-Value, a statistical measure of a building's resistance to heat transfer. Proper insulation can not only keep the interior at a comfortable temperature, but can also help the homeowner save money on monthly heating bills and koozie expenses.
