Because of the demand for our woodworking courses, you may want to consider sending your registration and tuition using an overnight service. We fill the classes on a first-come, first-serve basis.
By registering for a woodworking class, you agree to the Terms and Conditions.
We feel certain that we offer the best value anywhere in woodworking education. Here’s a list of what you’ll receive:
- Personal, high-quality, organized instruction. Class size at our woodworking school is small to assure that you receive personal attention.
- We mill the lumber for Woodworking Essentials–You won’t waste your valuable time standing in line at the planer. We mill the stock for you so that you can focus on developing your skills.
- Generous woodworking class hours. Class runs 8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. The last day of class is a full day. We don’t stop at noon to clean up.
- Use of your own large sturdy woodworking workbench and vise.
- Consumable supplies such as glue, sandpaper, and fasteners.
- Lunch each day of your woodworking class.
Classes meet from 8:00 am-5:00 pm each class day. The shop opens at 7:45 am.
Tools and Lumber
You’ll also need to supply lumber and hand tools to build your project. We’ll send you material and tool lists when you register for a class and recommend the best type of wood to use for each project. To make things even easier, you can purchase a lumber kit from our supplier to be delivered directly to the school.
We feel that we attract the most enthusiastic bunch of woodworkers in the USA–which is why we rarely have cancellations. However, we offer a generous cancellation policy (see below for details). If you are forced to cancel one of our woodworking classes, let us know in writing–with either a postal letter or an e-mail message.
Signing up for a woodworking class is a mutual time commitment. For the 2016 classes, if you cancel 95 days or more prior to your class’s start date, your tuition is fully refundable (minus a $150 processing fee).
If you cancel 61-94 days prior to your class’s 2016 start date, you’ll receive one-half of your tuition (minus a $150 processing fee).
As you can imagine, the closer you cancel to the start date of your woodworking class, the tougher it is to find someone who can make last-minute travel and work arrangements to take your place. For this reason, if you cancel within 60 days of your 2016 class’s start date, your tuition is not refundable.
Note: Because of the time commitment involved, we are not able to offer a refund on two or four-week classes and the Project Completion Class (unless the class is cancelled by Lonnie Bird’s School of Fine Woodworking) .
In the unlikely event that a woodworking class is cancelled by Lonnie Bird’s School of Fine Woodworking, we’ll promptly send you a full refund.
