Class Experience

Learners will be introduced to a new tool in each class and discover its name and its uses.
I am a professional finish carpenter who specializes in unique or high-end finish carpentry projects. I have also worked as a construction project manager and as a site supervisor, managing new custom home builds from the ground up to completion. I started learning about building in kindergarten as a subdivision was being built behind my home. The construction workers allowed me to watch them work and explained to me the tools that they were using and why. It's always great to have mentors! I have two sons who are 3 & 5 years old who love to build with me!

For the past couple of years, I have been building custom escape rooms, restoring a historic museum, building rustic-looking Viking hut in the woods, and more! If you are looking for an expert on tools, you have come to the right place!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
