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.

Class Hours

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.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

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 2017 classes the following policy applies: Because of the preparation and planning for your class, if you cancel 95 days or more prior to your class’s start date, you’ll forfeit 1/2 of your tuition. If you cancel within 94 days of your class’s start date, your tuition is not refundable. Two-week classes are non-refundable.

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.

Waiting Lists

One last thing. If you’re too late to get into your ideal class at the woodworking school, you can ask to be placed on a waiting list–at no charge or obligation.
