Marc Adams School of Woodworking Continues to Grow after 25 Years

 In Shop Blog, Woodworking Blogs

We recently had the opportunity to be guests at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking while making a video on Custom Cabinetry with Zane Powell (an instructor at the school). Our timing was carefully planned, if a bit fortuitous. The school was closed for classes, but putting the finishing touches on opening for the 2018 school year – and celebrating 25 years of education!

There are some great additions awaiting the thousands of students who will attend the more than 200 classes offered this year. In a newly constructed building, a technology classroom with CNC’s (pictured above) and more, a dedicated lathe room (below) and a brand new cafeteria with much more space (but the ice cream machine is still an important focal point of the room).

We asked Marc to give us a tour of the space just outside of Indianapolis, Indiana and share a little history. We found out that amongst his many skills as a woodworker and instructor, he’s a natural tour guide.

So congratulations to Marc, the school and to the many students over the years! Enjoy the tour.

    Someday. And in the mean time (and I’m completely serious) a short follow up video on how the ice cream maker works would be fun.

      Coulnd’t agree more, and I’m happy to make the sacrifice of driving to Indy to grab an ice cream cone…for our viewers sake, of course! Thanks! – DT
