After-School Woodshop

The Walder Science Woodshop invites children, high school students, and adults to learn basic woodworking and carpentry techniques using basic tools. Students work at their own pace under the instruction of our expert carpenter to complete exciting projects like tzedakah boxes and tabletop shtenders. Participants acquire practical measurement, precision, and assembly skills needed for day-to-day tasks, such as assembling a bookcase or hanging a picture. Advanced students, who show mastery of the basic skills, are introduced to carving, finishing, and furniture building techniques. Build confidence while developing fine motor, visual, kinesthetic, and spatial learning skills.
