Include a section on the History of Philadelphia Woodworks
Philadelphia Woodworks was founded in 2019 by two woodworking enthusiasts, Eric and Ken. Since then, the business has grown to become a premier woodworking learning studio in Philadelphia.
Eric and Ken both shared a passion for woodworking that transcended the classroom. After spending many years teaching woodworking classes in local high school-level shop classes, they decided they wanted to make a bigger impact on their community by crafting quality pieces with other passionate woodworkers like themselves. With these goals in mind, Philadelphia Woodworks was born.
Since its inception, Philadelphia Woodworks has grown from an idea into a full-fledged business offering classes and workshops for everybody from beginners to advanced levels of expertise. The curriculum provides an essential education about the artistry of working with different types of woods and includes topics such as using hand tools and power tools. Additionally, their classes offer hands-on demonstrations and projects that professionals need to learn intricate joinery techniques or just the skills to build something out of plywood for a home project.
In addition to learning about traditional machinery processes, students also have an opportunity to explore more modern methods such as 3D printing and CNC routing technology at Philadelphia Woodworks. There are opportunities for people of all experience levels to network with one another through events held on site – such as monthly open studios – as well as off-site visits arranged through field trips hosted by instructors who specialize in various techniques like metalwork or upholstery work, carving or marquetry. For those looking to foster connections within the greater woodworking community in Philadelphia there is no better way than participating in workshops offered at this venue.
