April is "National Woodworking Month," and the folks at a north Phoenix woodworking supply store are hoping to spread their knowledge of carpentry with others.

If you're interested in doing more projects around the house or want to become a do-it-yourself expert, now's your chance! 

Throughout the month of April, Rockler Woodworking and Hardware is offering hands-on experience with "make & take" project classes.

Classes range from $25-$60 and include all the materials and instruction — no experience or tools are needed. 

Children under the age of 18 are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must sign a waiver. Each class will last between two and three hours and will focus on one single project.

Project classes include: 

  • Custom Knife - mount, shape and finish a custom wood handle/grip on a knife kit.
  • Turned Handle - turn a wood handle on the lathe that can be used with bottle opener, ice cream scoop or pizza cutter hardware.
  • Wireless Speaker - build a small decorative box and install the speaker components inside.
  • Custom Sign - use a plunge router and character templates to create their own sign on a wood blank.
