Wood and Metal Table Series


This 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 4 session course begins on Friday, March 23rd and continues on the following Fridays, 3/30, 4/6, and 4/13. 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 ($200 value!) so you can practice what you learned and get started on your next project!

***New members must still attend our New Member Orientation within a month of the class start date before you can work in the shops. Check your receipt after purchasing for your coupon code to waive the orientation fee ($25 value!). You may take the orientation before or after this class, your membership will begin on the day you have completed both.***

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 require 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. Students who purchased the non-member ticket receive a month of Unlimited membership starting the first day of class but are still required to attend a New Member Orientation. Depending on the complexity of your design, there will be required time taken outside of class to complete your project.

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.
