Wood and Metal Table Series


This 5-session series is the full package! Start in the Wood Shop by collecting, arranging, cutting, and gluing up exotic wood scraps* for a unique tabletop; plane the completed boards, and add finishing oil or poly topcoat.  While in the metal shop, prepare and cut metal for a stand, weld, grind new welds and rough edges, and paint if desired. Finally, assemble the tabletop to the stand for a totally unique piece of furniture, all under the tutelage of a very talented ADX Maker.

This 5 session course begins on 11/6 and continues on the following weeks, 11/13, 11/20, 12/4, and 12/11. THIS SERIES WILL SKIP THE WEEK OF 11/27. Please confirm with your schedule that you will be available to attend each session.

* Our generous neighbor-makers Renovo Bikes have donated lots of small chunks of beautiful exotic hardwoods; pieces are the perfect size for this project, and there are a lot of wood types to choose from!

The non-member price includes 1 month of Unlimited Membership (valued at $200) so you can work on this project on your own time and practice what you’ve learned! ***New members must still attend our New Member Orientation within 30 days of the class start date before you can work in the shops, and can be taken before or after this course begins. Your membership will begin after the NMO has been completed and your first class session begins.***

ADX provides metal and lumber stock, all tools, equipment, materials, consumables and safety gear.

Students are encouraged to take both Intro to Wood and Intro to Metal before this table class; however, exceptions may be made for students with prior shop experience.  For more information, including waiving pre-reqs, contact

Due to the nature of this series, we strongly encourage participants to be members of ADX. Nonmembers will NOT have access to the shops at ADX between classes and may find they are unable to complete the project during class hours.

Classes are limited to 4 students to ensure lots of hands-on time with the tools and personal attention from the instructor. If the class is sold out but you’re still interested in this particular class, we can add your name to a waitlist and will contact you if a ticket becomes available. Email for more information.
