2nd Saturday Seminar

FREE Second Saturday Seminars!

08/12/17 Introduction to Sketchup

by Ryan Metcalfe



We host a number of demos and seminars at our facility. For your convenience these sessions are usually two hours in length and are held mostly on Saturdays. They cover a wide range of topics such new tool techniques, small projects, and demos of the newest equipment from our wide range of premier suppliers.


   Depending on the session, it may be hosted by one of our instructors from our School of Woodworking or a CU Woodshop Supply expert staff member. The sessions are laid back and enjoyable and often include amenities such as coffee, soft drinks and other refreshments. Take a look below to see our upcoming demos & seminars. Catch them all and broaden the scope of your woodworking skills!


Upcoming Seminar Schedule

(Every 2nd Saturday of the month from 10am-12pm)



Join us for an introductory seminar on SketchUp at CU Woodshop. This free drawing program can help you draft projects like a professional!

If you've never tried SketchUp, or haven't quite figured out how to use it, this seminar will explain the basics of the program and teach you tricks that make SketchUp faster and easier to use.
