Friday Social: Make Your Own Chopsticks

  • Hands-On Halifax 6070 Almon Street Halifax, NS, B3K Canada (map)

A great way to spend a Friday evening with a friend or a date. Brad from Holley Woodshop ( will show you how to make beautiful hand-planed and hand-detailed sets of chopsticks out of a variety of woods.

Skills in this class include hand-planing, chisels, table saw, band saw, and finish work. You'll work in pairs moving to each station, and at the end of the night you'll each have a set of custom chopsticks (or maybe a couple pairs, to give as Christmas gifts?). It's fun, low-stress, social, and educational all at once! 

You do not need to be a member for this class. $18 per person, or $30 for a pair! That includes two hours of instruction, materials, taxes, and your own chopsticks to take home at the end of the night.
