Friday, December 6, 2019

Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 is offering an adult woodworking class at Lincoln-Way Central, 1801 E. Lincoln Highway, New Lenox.

Whether you are interested in creating your own family heirlooms, doing repairs, or interested in a lifelong hobby, you can get started here. The class is open to anyone who is interested in exploring the basics of woodshop safety, power tools, woodworking machinery, lumber selection, glue-ups, joinery, sanding, finishing, and more. Tools and materials will be provided for each participant to build their own Adirondack Chair!

Members must be at least 18 years old and a high school graduate. They will need to bring their own safety glasses, tape measure, and pencils each week. No prior woodworking experience is necessary.

The course is taught by Lincoln-Way instructor Nick Schroder. Nick brings 16 years of woodworking experience with him and grew up in his dad’s furniture shop. Prior to teaching, Nick was a cabinetmaker for several years and ran his own woodworking business before moving to New Lenox.

The class will be held on the following Tuesdays in January: 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th, 2020 and will run from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Cost is $135.00 for the course and all materials. The class fills up quickly as space is limited.

Please email Nick at nschroder@lw210.org to register.
