“Inspiring people to learn and make things on their own” - Monte Eldfrick proud owner of Woodcraft Boise.

Monte and the entire team at Woodcraft are dedicated to helping customers find the perfect supplies for their next project, big or small. But it isn’t just high-quality supplies. Woodcraft is focused on the idea that everyone can be a woodworker.

Woodcraft is a family-owned and operated business that cherishes close connections with its woodworking and talented customers who they refer to as “extended family.” For ten years, Woodcraft of Boise has been working out of its storefront off Overland Road but has been a part of the local Treasure Valley business community for over 15 years. Over the years, they’ve become one of Boise’s most high-quality supply stores and continue to impress their daily visitors.

Everyone Can Be A Woodworker

Woodcraft believes that given the opportunity, everyone can become a woodworker, which is why they’re frequently providing opportunities for the Boise community to take workshop classes. Classes are offered for all levels, with focuses on different projects or skills. Some of the most popular classes are:

  • Bird Houses

Depending on the class’s project focus, classes can range from three hours, eight hours, to even a multi-day class.

Woodcraft Boise Classes

The best part about workshop classes at Woodcraft is they are an excellent activity for social distancing. Registration is required before the class, and depending on what class you’re taking the average class size ranges from 6-10 people. If you aren’t comfortable with taking classes with other people, gather a group of your friends or turn it into a private date night and learn how to build that project you’ve been eyeing on Pinterest.

The Benefits of Woodworking

After talking with the team at Woodcraft, we found out there are some pretty great benefits to getting into woodworking. The first of which, woodworking is actually a great form of therapy. It allows people to take their mind off their usual thoughts and instead allows them to dive into the process of woodworking. Utilizing their hands and brain, many students devour the projects and new skills they are learning due to an interest and desire to create the perfect project.

Woodcraft will work with you to determine what supplies will be the best fit for your project.
