What you'll do

You will learn basic woodworking techniques by creating your very own air plant holder. A variety of woods will be available to choose from. You'll create a unique shape for your planter or you can use one of my ready-made templates. After cutting out your creation on the bandsaw and shaping it on the belt sander, I will show you how to expertly sand and finish your piece so that you can proudly display your holder at home, or give it as a gift. You'll leave with a finished piece and an air plant to put in it.

I am a second-generation woodworker who has been building things big and small all my life. My wood shop is located in downtown Los Angeles, in the bustling Fashion District neighborhood. As a longtime DTLA resident, I can also help you navigate what to do before and after our experience! Feel free to contact me directly about customizing the start time or adding a workshop on a different day.

Where you'll be

The workshop will be held in my studio in Downtown Los Angeles. After you finish your piece, you are walking distance from shopping in Santee Alley, or having a bite in a nearby bistro.

We had an amazing time working with C.C. and building planters at her workshop. She is super sweet and explained everything really well. I would definitely go back!

I recently visited LA and booked this woodworking class for myself, my 21 year-old daughter, and her friend. We had an amazing time! C.C. greeted us with a warm welcome and made us feel comfortable with using the professional machines and tools. She demonstrated everything first, and then she allowed us to practice before making our vases. All proper safety equipment was provided. We had plenty of time to complete our project. We all had a wonderful time, and we learned a lot. The vases we each made turned out unique and beautiful! I highly recommend C.C. and her class!

This was my first time woodworking and I had a great time! C.C. taught us how to use all the machines safely and also explained all the basic concepts. After basic instruction, we got to do all the steps ourselves. The planter turned out amazing and now I want to make more! C.C. was a great instructor, answering all our questions, and also explained some of the techniques behind her current advanced projects as well.

This experience that C.C. offers is tremendously valuable and awesome! She was super welcoming and friendly, very knowledgable, and is an expert in what she does! The studio itself has all the tools and goes above and beyond of what is necessary for building the wooden planter! I can't ask for a better experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in woodworking or even to just have a new experience. It also makes a great gift to a friend or loved one; not only do you do something together, but you also you take home something memorable from the experience. Thanks C.C.!!

CC is definitely a master at her craft and she helps you build confidence in woodworking. She really knows what she’s doing and she is very knowledgeable when it comes the wood types, how it will turn out and what to expect. She also gives each person very personal attention.

The woodworking experience with C.C. was amazing! She was extremely friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend her experience to anyone looking to make something fun and interesting with their hands. My wife and I did it for our anniversary and we walked out with two beautiful planters that will always remind us of this fun day.
