School Facility

In the fall of 2012 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
  • Door Glue-up Jig

    When making rail and style doors it is sometimes difficult to clamp the door assembly square while the glue dries.  To help keep the doors square, build a door jig.  A door jig is a flat panel with two cleats attached to a base forming a square corner.  The jig provides one square corner, providing a reference point for checking the door frame. To use the jig assemble the door without clamps and place the door into the jig with one corner of the door tight into the 90° corner of the jig.  Be sure one rail and one style are snug to the cleats of the jig.  Use a clamp to apply enough pressure to the door to hold the door parts in position while the glue dries.  CUWS Staff
