3rd Ward

3rd Ward, an art facility in Brooklyn, contacted me about mentioning their woodworking department on my blog.  

I have never been to the facility, but I noticed on their website that Joel Moskowitz is teaching a Sharpening class on June 25 (read his write up here), so I asked him about the woodworking programs and instructors.  He told me that although he has never taught there before, he believes there is a need for this type of facility that provides basic training for designers and furniture makers.

He said that 3rd Ward rents shop space to woodworkers and professionals who are just starting out and that the shop contains the normal machinery and benches you would expect.

So if you live in the surrounding areas, this might be a really good opportunity for you.  If you have any questions about the woodworking programs, please email
