School Facility

Last Fall we cut the ribbon on the newest of our three facilities and followed that up with a Grand Opening of our School of Woodworking. We believe it provides the very top-tier in educational facilities for woodworkers. View the video above to see what great things people are saying! Better yet, come and see the Midwest's Premier Woodworking Destination!

Tip of the Week
  • Keeping Open Containers of Finish

    What is the best method of storing an open container of finish?  Partial containers of finish can form a ‘skin’ on the surface due to the air in the container if they are left standing for a long period of time.  To help extend the shelf-life of open containers of finish pour the partial container of finish into a glass or plastic jar (properly labeled) sized to minimize the amount of air space in the container.  Additionally any finish that may spill on the rim (threads) of the jar can make opening the container difficult.   To prevent this problem and help keep air from the container wrap a layer or two of Teflon tape over the threads of the container.  Allow some of the tape to lap over the top of the container rim so it comes into contact with the lid.  Most finishes and paint will not stick to the tape, so the container is easier to open in the future.  CUWS Staff
