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.

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.
Not Just A Store Full Of Woodworking Supplies
Woodcraft doesn’t only provide classes for woodworking, but shelves all necessary wood project supplies, including lumber, plywood, finishing supplies, techniques, epoxy and so much more. Typically, epoxy has been applied to concrete and garage floors in Boise. But now, with the correct woodworking techniques, you can apply epoxy paint to wood to give it the perfect finished touch.
Woodcraft isn’t the average supply store. It is also dedicated to providing educational and experienced advice for your next big project. They carry the most premium quality items to ensure your project is completed to a high-quality, well-finished style. Woodcraft will work with you to determine what supplies will be the best fit for your project.
