Learn how to incorporate epoxy into your woodworking projects.

About this Event

This course is for beginners who wish to learn basic woodworking and epoxy usage skills. The knowledge and steps covered in this course can be applied to any future projects of varying scales that combine wood and epoxy.

During the process, each student will create their own epoxy and wood combination coasters.

This course takes places once a week over three weeks. Each week, students will be guided by our instructor Bryan on the use of numerous woodworking tools, the process in which to prep and pour epoxy, and the finishing stages of the project.
