The wood and boatbuilding studio in BARN’s new center features an enclosed bench room of 1,050 square feet for hand tool use and a main shop area of 3,500 square feet equipped with all major power tools, multiple lathes, and an area dedicated to repairing and building small boats. Read more about our wonderful new shop.
Shaped by the vision of Roger Lauen, this is a true community woodshop, welcoming woodworkers of all skill levels from throughout the West Sound. Beginners will find all the training they need, and seasoned woodworkers will have access to tools that even many professional shops lack, as well as opportunities to share their knowledge with others.
