Weekend Woodworking Workshops at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks

Spend a weekend with a woodworking master in the Lie-Nielsen Toolworks classroom in beautiful Mid-coast Maine! Each workshop is designed to give you a hands-on experience with woodworking hand tools and techniques. Each student will have use of their own Lie-Nielsen workbench and will be provided a list of suggested tools for each workshop. (They encourage students to bring their own tools or buy the required tools prior to the workshop, as there are not enough classroom tools to outfit everyone.) Students may also purchase new tools and accessories from their showroom.

For all Workshops: Lunch is provided. Limited to 12 people. Standard ticket price is $275, unless otherwise noted. An additional Materials Fee applies to certain workshops; check each class description for details.
