Woodworking, like rhinoplasty, requires a trained hand, involves precise cuts, and gets humans one step closer to upstaging haughty woodpeckers. Chip away at avian arrogance with today’s Groupon to North Country Woodshop in Burnsville. Choose between the following options:

  • For $75, you get the Cutting Board Course ($150 value).
  • For $190, you get The Complete Series of three Woodworking 101 workshops, which includes six total classes that yield a tambour clock, a cutting board, and a shaker table ($390 value).

North Country Woodshop’s stable of lumber-shaping instructors educates aspiring and existing woodworkers with accessible classes, garnering favorable reviews from local press for their dedication to the craft. Woodworking courses allow pupils to outpace hyperactive beavers in a 10,000-square-foot woodshop flecked with more than 40 mounted power tools, saws, and hand tools. Throughout each course, students hone skills on top-quality equipment, including planers, jointers, table saws, presses, and sanders, also gleaning general assembly techniques and overviews of the various wood species. Using their newfound skills and provided materials, trained woodsmiths depart the three progressive workshops with a completed tambour clock, cutting board, shaker table, and ability to frighten the neighbor’s impeding oak tree. The cutting board course yields one cutting board.

American Workshop

The founders of American Workshop describe their public workspace as a “health club for woodworkers." Much like a gym, the shop is a place where members gain access to specialized equipment that would otherwise take over their entire garage or spouse’s side of the bedroom closet. American Workshop’s experts also assume similar roles as fitness coaches as they lead classes, workshops, and one-on-one training sessions that help participants achieve personal goals.

American Workshop’s array of classes strengthens students’ grasp on woodworking essentials through hands-on practice drafting out ideas, measuring out board stock, and exploring the structural and aesthetic qualities of various projects. Students can also learn decorative techniques, such as applying an even finish with stains, dyes, and embarrassing stories that make wood blush. Safety-oriented courses, such as Woodworking 101 for beginners or Intro to Furniture and Cabinetry Design, are designed to boost confidence in using woodworking equipment, and private one-on-one sessions match students up with an expert to clarify lessons covered in classes.
