We are pleased to announce our first classes in the new Woodworking with Ron facility in New Holland, Ohio! The currently 3,200 square-foot shop features a 1,600-sf hand-tool and instruction side and an equivalent power-tool side in a beautiful setting not far from the Columbus and Cincinnati airports and close to hotels, dining, shopping and places of interest.

With classes held in basically a working tool museum, our student benches will be packed with every tool needed for classes and then some, but students are always welcome to bring their own tools.
We are pleased to be able to offer the best wood reference books we have come across to date: A Guide to Useful Woods of the World and its companion book, A Guide to More Useful Woods of the World, from the International Wood Collectors Society. Go to our Products page to learn more.
