If you've been looking for a creative outlet with an emphasis on community, Veterans Woodworking Workshop has just the thing is the right place. I offer woodworking workshops for veterans and people that are looking to create memories that will last a lifetime.

I'm Don Roden, founder of Veterans Woodworking Workshop. As a veteran, I have a special place for fellow veterans who may be struggling, like many of us do, and who may want to share a creative outlet. I enjoy sharing my love of woodturning and woodworking with anyone who wants to learn.

Don't miss out on unique classes

My shop is more than just a place to make wooden creations. One of my goals at Veterans Woodworking Workshop is to provide a safe space for creativity. Having artistic hobbies comes with several benefits beyond art. Along with creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art, some other benefits of woodworking as a pastime include:

  • Boosting overall mood
  • Increasing mental clarity
  • Reducing anxiety and stress
  • Utilizing communication skills
  • Improving fine motor skills
  • Honing a creative skill
  • Utilizing math skills

Why you should work with us

Our small business is one-of-a-kind. While there are art classes all around, finding a woodworking class that focuses on the mental health of veterans is unique. You should trust our local woodworker because we:

Have years of experience in the business
Help people channel their creative side in a safe environment
Offer resources for veterans
Create memories that will last a lifetime
