The shop is open during workshop times and by appointment.
We have six – Special Interest Groups (SIGs): Toys, Lathe, Scroll Saw, Tools and Techniques, Carving, and Digital Workshop. Members attend and participate in the groups of their interest. We are dedicated to teaching the skills of woodworking, by classes, projects, and demonstrations, with safety and participation.
Shop Location -
You can find us at:
405 Western Road #36, Reno, NV.
We are in a large collection of commercial shops in big steel buildings. We are on the far end of the 2nd long building.
The Toy group meets every other Saturday at 9:00 a.m. and every other Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. and makes the toys we give away every Christmas. You can learn a broad range of skills making the toys. They use Table Saws, Routers, planers, drum sanders, band saws, scroll saws and hand tools. This is a good place to start for someone who wants to learn general woodworking and even toy painting.
The Lathe group meets on the third and fourth Tuesdays 6:30 p.m. and works on various projects and the instruction is individualized.
Tools and Techniques
The TNT (tools and techniques) meets on 3 and 4th Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. TNT’s goal is to provide guidance and skills training to the members in the techniques required to complete wood projects which includes the safe use of various power & hand tools.
The Scroll saw group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. (We are currently on summer vacation in swimming pools and trips to Alaska.)
Digital Work Shop
Learn to design and use the new 48 x 48 CNC router or soon to be online the 60 watt co2 laser. Check in with SIG Leader Ron F. For more details (Be sure to mention his name in the body of your email.). Ron is our resident expert, but to learn, it needs to be a 1:1 session or two.
