Conover Workshops: Woodworking General Information

General Information

Hands-on Learning in a Class of its Own

We believe in learning through doing. Conover Workshops provides an unparalleled educational experience where top instructors demonstrate techniques then supervise your progress in our first-rate facility. Small class sizes ensure one-on-one attention from your teacher and allow for exclusive use of a workbench and/or lathe while you are with us. Some courses lend themselves to a seminar format, but when it comes to learning the correct techniques, our attention to detail and commitment to excellence are second to none.

At Conover Workshops you can leave your worries behind and concentrate on learning. Carefully designed to be built within the allotted class time and carried home in a regular car or on an airplane, each project becomes a living example of the techniques you have learned and will add beauty and value to your home. With our skilled staff and first class facility, Conover Workshops is the place to safely enhance your skills and provide the foundation upon which your love of woodworking will grow.
