Keeseh Studio's woodworkers oversee a community woodshop, hosting classes in a variety of timber topics and granting access to machinery, tools, and workspaces for aspiring carpenters of all experience levels. Whether interested in crafting furniture or whittling a new set of dentures for a robot, clients can enroll in classes covering topics such as design, construction, hand tools, and machinery. During the four-hour Jumpstart Woodworking course, students learn proper use of machinery ($75), or the two-hour Small Table Course's seven sessions guide students through the process of crafting four-legged dining fixtures or table-dancing surfaces ($300). In the Join Us for Joinery class, students meet for four separate three-hour sessions that inculcate a detailed understanding of joinery for hardwood and plywood construction. Instruction from skilled woodworkers ensures that the only thing that threatens the aesthetic integrity of their woodworking projects is a surprise beaver attack.
