Instructables Woodworking Club: 1st meeting a success!

The first Instructables Woodworking Club meeting was a great success!

Our 5 participants were eager to learn, and the excellent step-by-step project in the Instrutctables Woodworking Class took us through the project.

Here’s what Instructables Club member Lana said about her experience with the first project:

“I decided to join in order to gain confidence using the woodworking tools. I found the group really encouraging and helpful especially since we were all working through the lesson together. I am so proud of myself- I took an ugly green 4×4 and made these amazing dice that just turned out way better then I ever hoped they would. I have never used power tools before and now I can walk into the workshop and feel competent enough to handle a compound miter saw, a drill press and various sanders. Which I always thought were too scary for me. Thank you Yukonstruct and Instructables.
After the first Instructables experience I went on to join the second Instructables group in October 2016.”

The second iteration of this workshop will be learning all about glue while making a house number sign. Stay tuned for even more!
