What you'll do
We'll start by rolling up our sleeves and picking out some fresh pine for your deco shelf. We'll learn how to safely use a variety of power tools, then break out the elbow grease to hand-sand the shelves and do some custom-engraving. A cold, locally-brewed Anchor Steam beer is the perfect partner for putting on the final touches. You'll leave with a lovingly-crafted shelf that will give you permanent bragging rights. Whether you're a Bay Area native or new to the city, experience for yourself what makes this place special: creative people in creative spaces adding small pieces of beauty to the world.
Light refreshments and beer
Nine years ago I founded Wood Thumb, a wood shop where we've designed and sold hundreds of thousands of high-quality wood products across the globe. Our clients have included big-name retailers such as Anthropologie, Williams Sonoma and Urban Outfitters. But my true passion is not production — it's sharing the gift of woodworking with people who don't have the knowledge, tools or belief in themselves to build something with their hands. I started crafting from wood as a kid and have been embedded in San Francisco's creative maker community for more than 15 years.
