Looking for fun things to do in San Francisco? Why not try a hands-on class that will help you learn new skills?

In this fun and relaxing woodworking class, you’ll learn how to make a beautiful, personalized cutting board with the help of the brothers from San Francisco’s Wood Thumb workshop.

This three-hour course is cut out for anyone looking for fun date night ideas or if you're hoping to book a team-building exercise for bonding in an atmosphere of creativity and craftsmanship.

Your board will begin as a piece of fine walnut, which you’ll then cut to size with a chop saw with the help of your expert instructors. You’ll also use a drill press and router table to add your own decorative flourishes and a wood burner to engrave whatever message, words, or images strike your fancy.

Let your inner woodworker run wild as you make something cool and functional with your own two hands.

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.

The teacher was amazing! He made such a welcoming and comfortable environment for beginners. I had never done woodworking and came away with a beautiful cutting board. He even had vegan cutting board oil that didn’t have beeswax to accommodate me and my boyfriend. I will definitely be coming back to this workshop!

The class was fantastic! You get to build your cutting board from scratch and the end result is something you’ll look forward to using or gifting to someone else. Chris the instructor is very passion and kind. I told him my name once and he remembered it till the very end. If you are looking for an art class in SF, look no further.

This wood working class was amazing! Our teacher was so knowledgeable, helped us build confidence with machinery, and provided everything we needed! There was a perfect amount of time for us to work together (sharing the machines/discussing which materials to use) but also on our own time to just be present and focus on the beautiful task at hand! Great for new and experienced individuals. Great price and value for everything, would definitely recommend!
