Sawkill workshops are designed for learning the fundamentals of woodworking, making objects of reclaimed wood, and knowing the sources of these spectacularly beautiful woods.
The classes are for people of all backgrounds – beginners to those more experienced and looking to explore reclaimed woods with a fun project that doesn’t take long to complete.
We cover basic woodworking skills, using both modern equipment and traditional tools. There are so many benefits to woodworking, along with creating a long-lasting and cherished object.
The workshops feature old growth woods – with their exquisite figure, rich tones and the character marks that are witness to their history.
The workshops provide participants with access to timeless rare woods, like antique Southern longleaf pine and Northern white pine, often sourced from building sites in and around New York (NYC).
This is a hidden treasure! Great variety of reclaimed wood, with access to much more off site.

Walking into the warehouse is like a trip through history, with wood ranging from the Coney Island boardwalk to factory flooring to fresh lumber from the mill.
