Ok, this is driving me nuts.
I need a woodworking studio that I can either rent time at, take classes to get access to, join a club to use, or whatever. Living in a small Boston apartment isn't conducive to large woodworking tools and lots of sawdust.
I've checked the sites of a couple colleges, and they don't seem to offer anything.
Anyone have a lead for me?

Drop a line to Pablo at byksm at yahoo dot com. He's mentioned a place that has all manner of tools and space at a flat per month rate. The one problem is that it's in Woburn, which would require a bit of a commute for you.

Also, have you tried MassArt and/or North Bennett Street School?

Yeah... several, actually. He'll be starting up a folder class sometime in the next few weeks.

North Bennett is a pretty intensive program, and I'm not sure that they do anything outside of full-time instruction. I know a few people who have gone through for varies things, including violin making and bookbinding. Neat stuff... wish I was at liberty to enroll.

You could also try the MFA Museum School. Not sure whether their programs venture into wood, but it's worth a shot.

Have you tried Boston CAE or Cambridge CAE? One of them might have the same sort of arrangement available.

have now, neither of them seem to have their own shops, and the boston one doesn't even seem to have woodworking classes. ^_^

Try local high schools? I don't know how much public schools may have cut back their funding, but maybe one of them still has a wood shop...
