Dale, a third-generation woodworker, teaches you how to build heirloom-quality furniture in many styles – Arts and Crafts, Mission, Shaker, Victorian.
You’ll be treated like family as Dale shares his deep experience, tips and humor about woodworking. Dale’s goal is to build your confidence in craftsmanship as you create beautiful furniture and learn new skills. You’ll create the highest quality furniture for much less than retail prices.

“ I have a Morris Chair in my home that I built in Dale’s class.
I was an absolute beginner. He taught me everything I know. I am so proud of it and my wife is proud of me. It is an heirloom that I will pass on to my daughter one day. ”
