Wortheffort is a dedicated woodworking school positioned in the middle of an art gallery, also dedicated to woodworking. A place to inspire, educate and motivate new artisans in this craft. We have afterschool programs, evening classes and long weekend classes targeting all skill ranges. Starting out we'll specialize in hand tool and basic machinery education but hope to quickly expand into carving, turning, scrolling and sculpting. We also have a YouTube Channel and Facebook page.
