Our Beginning Classes are a great way to build the foundation to move on to building whatever you want with our expert advice and assistance. Special for students only:
One hour (plus a bit) of mentoring worth $65 an hour for your first independent project
- Design consults
- CAD drawings
- Tool certifications
- Ongoing hands-on help
What is mentoring? Well that's really up to you. The time can be spent with a design consult where all you bring is your ideas or a rough sketch and we can help get them further along. Maybe you need material advice or need help even sourcing material.
Often students have ideas for their first project but don't know where to start. We'd like to help more class graduates transition into short term rentals or become subscribers.
Quick or highly detailed drawings can be created to assist in your measurements, cut lists, and verifying overall functionality. Some projects don't require drawings while others would be very difficult without them. When you come in for a design consult, we can pick the route that makes the most sense for you.
Mentoring can take the form of ongoing tool certifications or hands-on help on the shop floor. Some shop users will bring a set of plans they purchased already and the majority of their mentoring time is for help with things like setting up advanced cuts or using and creating jigs to speed up work.
Mentoring / hands-on help is billed in a 15 minute increment so you only pay for what you need. Our goal is to make you self-sufficient enough to complete your own projects at your leisure.
Returning students taking advantage of the special offer must schedule before the next round of classes starts, typically 3 weeks after your last class.
Group mentoring is also available if you'd like to work as a team with a friend, partner, or family member. For group sessions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
