At this time, we are suspending classes at the Studio until May 4th. Our planned Mastery Open House on April 11th has been cancelled.

Stay tuned as we start to post new content on Youtube for all to see.

The Northwest Woodworking Studio understands the concerns we all have about safety. No student or staff member with COVID-19 symptoms are permitted access to the Studio. We will do everything we can to keep our students and staff safe. We also hope that everyone uses good health practices not just in the Studio but elsewhere as well: twenty second hand washing, covering coughs & sneezes, avoiding personal contact, and plenty of rest.

Do what you can to be a model of calm in a stormy sea.Things change rapidly. I think our low number of students and the precautions we can take should exempt us from having to shut down. But with the new guidelines and the reasonable concerns of folks, I think it best that we put things on hold for a time.

I think that getting to the bench in this time of anxiety actually does more good than bad. But I'll be damned if I know what to do with no virus tests available and the worst in terms of infection numbers not yet known. So I'm going to put classes on hold until the week of May 4th. I will stay in touch as I know more how to keep us all safe and still have a life. Thanks for your understanding. Let's all get through this together.

1 Handmade
Gary's new book is out: Handmade: Creative Focus in the Age of Distraction. It is part narrative and part discourse on the value of mastery, practice, and creativity in this time of attention disorder. The book argues for the need to create, for using our hands to help us engage with the world, and the value of failure and forgiveness in our work.

To order your book, please check out the link at LINDEN PUBLISHING.

"Dear Gary, Just a quick note to THANK YOU for your book, Handmade. I enjoyed it so much that I read it twice, and extracted even more wisdom on the second reading! The only other 2 books I have ever read twice are Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Catcher in the Rye! I have also gifted it to several friends and recommended it to many. Thank you for enriching my life!" Mary Ann Carmack

Handmade argues for the need for individuals and for cultures to remain creative, to stay curious, and to keep engaged with the physical world as a means of thinking more clearly.

Gary Rogowski: Master of Joinery

Our Studio Director Gary Rogowski has received much acclaim for his book The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery . Here's what the website "The Best Things" has to say:

GaryThere’s no more thorough and readable guide to joinery than this new book from expert woodworker Gary Rogowski. The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery uses full-color, step-by-step photo essays to show you how to make every practical woodworking joint. Over 1,400 color photos and drawings illustrate the methods, from simple butt joints to angled tenons and complex scarf joints.


UPCOMING MASTERWORKS CLASS WITH GARY 

Joinery Concentration: Mortise and Tenons

 Joinery Concentration, June 15-19, 10am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. 

Joinery is a mixture of accuracy and patience. Come and learn how to design and lay-out and make great mortise and tenon joints. Get practice every day at the bench making hand cut joints. This will improve all of your work at the bench. Work with hand tools, band saws, and routers as you make a small table with leg and apron construction. This class counts as a prerequisite toward applying for our Mastery Programs
