Closing the School

David Coulthard

Thank you for your support and interest in Midwest Woodworking School.

Circumstances have dictated a new direction for me and the school. The rent at the current location became unsustainable and therefore we are closing the school for the foreseeable future until we can figure out a new direction and possible new location.

We will be keeping the website live and hope to post video workshops soon. When we have more information we will let you know. Again thank you for your support and please email us if you have any questions about woodworking and we will be happy to give you what guidance we can.

Good luck with your Woodworking.
