Anyone can give woodworking a go.
Our come & try woodworking short course is designed for the total novice where we will cover the very basics and get those creative vibes flowing! You will have the chance to complete one of our serving paddle kits and apply a hand rubbed food-safe beeswax & oil finish.
The natural beauty of timber.
When completing furniture projects with us, you will be using high quality, furniture grade, seasoned timber. Some of the timbers are imported from overseas and others are grown right here in Australia.
Workshop setup for hobby woodworking.
Our well equipped workspace has all the hand tools, power tools and machinery you will need to build basic furniture and objects. We don't use any commercial level machinery with students as if you are unlikely to be able to afford it- there's no point learning on commercial machinery.

The Adelaide School of Woodwork was established in 2019 by Adelaide woodworker Taylor McLean. After working with a national supplier of specialist woodworking tools & machinery, Carbatec for 10 years, Taylor resigned to fulfil a demand within the community running lessons for those who wanted to get started in safely working with timber.
