Class Info

ReBuilding Exchange's mission is to create a market for reclaimed building materials. They do this by diverting materials from landfills and making them accessible for reuse through their retail warehouse, by promoting sustainable deconstruction practices, by providing education and job training programs, and by creating innovative models for sustainable reuse.

In this class, students be fully embracing the reclaiming movement by making their very own free standing or hangable planter box from reclaimed wood materials (type of wood dependent on availability). Elements of the planter box will be cut with the help of a miter saw, band saw and assembled together using clamps and nails.

    The teacher was super patient with my terrible woodworking skills (I don't think there is anything I'm worse at, or slower at, rather).

      Came home with lots of knowledge and a finished piece which I am very proud to say I made.
