Flooring Sand & Finish Class
For our Flooring Sand & Finish Class, we partnered with American Sanders to offer eleven talented flooring professionals two days of expert instruction and hands on experience using a wide variety of products. By the end of it, our training floor was a mosaic of different color combinations and sanding schemes. Daniel Boone, of American Sanders, teamed up with Johannes Boonstra, of Rubio Monocoat, to share their 80+ years of combined sanding and finishing knowledge. Special shout out to American Sanders for partnering with us to make this happen!
Woodworking Sand & Finish Class
The Woodworking Sand & Finish Class featured thirteen talented Instagram woodworkers from all over the U.S. With guidance from Brian "Sedge" Sedgeley of Festool and Allan Nery, of Rubio Monocoat, the makers built three custom pieces to be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the wife of a woodworker in the community. Faith Jablonski, wife of Lucas Jablonski from Lighthouse Woodworks, recently found out that she has an aggressive form of bone cancer. In response, the Instagram woodworking community has rallied around her with countless posts and prayers. The whole class got behind the cause and created these pieces with Faith in mind. It was an awesome way to fellowship with the woodworking community, learn about some top notch products, and create for a great cause.
Along with Festool and American Sanders were a bevvy of other companies that partnered with us to make these classes a reality. The Hardwood Mall, Ramia Workbenches, Wall Control, Woodpecker, Bessey, 3M, and Titebond were all essential to the school’s success and we are abundantly grateful for their contribution.
