A Chat with Grizzly Woodworking
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We have developed a set of classes specifically for kids of all ages. Our 1700 sq/ft workshop has large and low workbenches to accommodate multiple students no matter their age. Adult classes are also available from time to time. Wood and other materials are included.
What is the experience customers can expect?
We strive to keep our classes fun and educational. We begin by covering woodshop safety an procedures and hand out safety gear. Students will learn about the wood and tools & then move on to using them. We finish off this class with Fractal woodburning! Students will take their hard work home!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
If my kids had it their way, they would be plugged into their iPad's or computers all day. I want kids of all ages to put down the electronics and get some hands-on experience with woodworking. The sense of accomplishment on our students faces when they finish a projects makes it worth it!
What do you love most about your job?
Watching my students turn their designs and ideas into reality using the tools and skills they learn in my shop. Their sense of accomplishment as they walk out the door makes it all worth it for me. Also, having my family in this business venture with me has made it absolutely awesome.
