Dear Ones,

BLACK LIVES MATTER. Unequivocally Black lives matter.  We mourn the death of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and so many others that were murdered by the police. The shop actively believes in dismantling white supremacy and supporting the BIPOC community, in particular Black lives right now.

We know you haven’t heard from us in a minute because we have paused to focus on the Minneapolis and St. Paul community in real life, not the digital realm. We are slowly coming back together to keep working on our new structure as non-profit and making sure we build anti-racism actions into our very foundation so we can address the vast inequities in the woodworking world. We hope you too are looking at your role in white privilege and how to deconstruct the injustices woven into this country’s framework too.

We do intend to offer classes again but there is a lot of work to do behind the scenes and there is still a pandemic and unfortunately touching and sharing tools is a big part of our classroom. Please be patient with us and support organizations that are changing the world for the better right now.
