2.5 hours Class size 1 to 65     label $75

Discover a novel and whimsical way to display your favorite flowers and sharpen your woodworking skills in this drill and chill course from San Francisco’s family-owned and community-focused Wood Thumb.

If you’re looking for things to do in San Francisco as a couple, a group, or solo, this beginning-level class is the perfect antidote to work-week burnout.

First up, you’ll get to select your very own piece of fine walnut. From there, it’s onto the power tools portion. You’ll cut your board to size, smooth out the edges, drill holes for the magnets, and attach your vase with a striking band of copper. The pièce de résistance? Using a burning tool to write a special message in the wood.

When you’re finished, you’ll have a charming vase you can fill with seasonal flora and stick to your fridge or any other metal surface in your home. It’s also a unique gift idea for anyone eager to work with their hands and hoping to add “fine woodworking” to their list of special skills.

Be prepared to humblebrag. A vase like this is sure to attract a lot of attention and compliments.

Wood Thumb is the vision of two brothers, Christopher and David Steinrueck. They set out to build a creative community that embodies craftsmanship and sustainability. It’s really a company of ongoing experiments.

From selling products to teaching workshops, we’ve achieved what we believe is the perfect blend of entrepreneurial makers and designers. Add a kick of cowboy innovation and you’ll understand who we are.

Our Community
We started out in 2011 making small batches of wood products and selling them to stores around the country. The products were successful, but after a while, we felt as though there was something missing. We thought long and hard about the purpose of Wood Thumb and realized our goal was to get as many people passionate about woodworking as possible. Begin the workshop era.

Wood Thumb believes that anyone and everyone should experience the satisfaction of woodworking. We’ve turned our focus to creating a community centered around craftsmanship and creativity. We’d love to have you come to a workshop or stop by sometime to say hey.
