Get Crafty With Woodworking This Fall at Woodcraft in Boise

Last updated September 01, 2022 by Totally Boise

Fall and the smell of fresh-cut wood go hand in hand: that smell might mean splitting logs for burning in your house over the winter, starting a campfire, or, if you’re a wood craftsman, starting a new project.

Located on Overland, Woodcraft is your all-things-woodworking shop in Boise. Locally owned and operated, Woodcraft was established in 1928 and supplies all the woodworking books, tools, and supplies you may need for a fun fall project.

Amateur to highly skilled, all woodworking hobbyists in the Treasure Valley can find the supplies, advice, workshops, and community they are looking for at Woodcraft!

Tis the Season to Make Wood Crafts

Making your own gifts from scratch for the holidays is a great way to test your skills while also saving money. Woodcraft has plenty of kits, plans, and materials to get you started, whether you’re a beginner or expert.

As the days get shorter and more time is spent indoors, why not invest in a new hobby like woodworking or expand your skill set by getting crafty. Whether that means doing your own project, attending one of Woodcraft’s free live demos, or signing up for one of their many monthly classes.

Women in Woodworking this Fall

Woodworking is for everyone and Woodcraft wants to make sure that all feel welcome when it comes to making wood crafts. Woodcraft has a number of women’s woodworking classes to instill confidence while women learn in a female-friendly space.

Here is the fall lineup of women’s woodworking classes:

  • Women’s Wooden Spoon Making with John Mumford
    • Tuesday, September 27th, 5–9 pm
