What you'll do

We'll start by rolling up our sleeves and picking out some fresh pine for your wedge table. We'll learn how to safely use a variety of power tools, then break out the elbow grease to hand-sand the tables and do some custom-engraving. A cold, locally-brewed Anchor Steam beer is the perfect partner for putting on the final touches. You'll leave with a lovingly-crafted table that will give you permanent bragging rights. This elegant and modern end table is our most popular workshop ever. The wedge table is easy to squeeze into those small spaces, plus it’s the perfect home for a plant, magazines or wine bottles. Whether you're a Bay Area native or visiting for the first time, experience for yourself what makes this place special: creative people in creative spaces adding small pieces of beauty to the world.

I started crafting from wood as a kid and have been embedded in San Francisco's creative maker community for more than 15 years. Nine years ago I founded Wood Thumb, a wood shop where we've designed and sold hundreds of thousands of high-quality wood products across the globe. Our clients have included big-name retailers such as Anthropologie, Williams Sonoma and Urban Outfitters. But my true passion is not production — it's sharing the gift of woodworking with people who don't have the knowledge, tools or belief in themselves to build something with their hands.

Such a great experience! A really fun introduction to woodworking and loved hearing about Chris's experiences and passion for the craft. Chris was so welcoming and accommodating, taking time to answer questions and helping us create by ourselves. Getting to experience each step of the process, from picking, cutting, and sanding wood to using the tools and staining was such a highlight. Thank you Chris for a great evening!

This was an amazing experience! We had such a fun time building our tables and learning about the different machinery in the shop. Christopher was an amazing host, very patient and welcoming and always helpful. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone.

Amazing team or individual experience. It was great fun using all the tools and machines to cut wood and nailing them together. Wood cutting seems so much less overwhelming now. The style of the table we took back is so versatile could almost fit in any home style. Christopher was a very helpful instructor and very friendly. Thanks for a fun evening.

Chris was so congenial, patient, and knowledgeable. I loved getting to take home something it was hard to believe I built with my own hands! Awesome feeling, and will definitely be back!

Chris was an A+ instructor and also responsive on Airbnb. I arrived late due to traffic but he was so gracious about it and even let me stay after a bit to not only finish up my piece but also encouraged me to finish it well. Chris's passion for woodworking - and teaching I believe! - was so evident and he was very attentive and responsive to everyone in the class; I wish I got to be there for the intro. I appreciated that he taught in a very accessible manner so that a newbie like me could feel free to ask questions and gain a really solid experience. If you're looking to get your feet wet with woodworking, I highly recommend this course! (Also, parking can be a bit tricky, but circling around a couple times (after 5pm) is typically sufficient to find a space on the same block.)

Christopher was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain and answer all questions. Ended up with an amazing end table I love to show off!
