What to Expect from a DIY Wood Workshop

If you’ve never attended a DIY wood workshop before, you might be wondering what to expect. Our workshops offer easy-to-follow instructions that guide you through making your masterpiece, all while having fun with friends or family from Downers Grove, Hinsdale, or the surrounding Chicagoland suburbs!

Preparing to Make Your Custom Wood Sign

Before your workshop day, you can take a look at our design library for inspiration. Once you find the design you like, let us know which style you’ve selected. You can also add custom text!

If you don’t see a template that appeals to you, you can create a custom design for an additional $10.

Attending a DIY Workshop

Once you’re here at our Burr Ridge studio, you grab an apron, choose your wood stain and paint colors, and you’re ready to get to work!

Our helpful staff will walk you through each step and guide you through the process of creating your masterpiece. We’re here to help if you’re unsure of any of the steps, and we can offer advice on the details as you go. When you’re finished, you get to take home your custom made wood sign to display in your home or give as a fabulous handmade gift.

It’s a good idea to arrive at the scheduled time to all DIY workshops to ensure you have the maximum amount of time to work.
