Many thanks to our friend, and stellar member of the Would Works Board of Directors--Nick Offerman--for hosting our first virtual woodworking workshop fundraiser!

Nick spent the day at his neighboring woodshop Offerman Woodshop, just down the road from WW, teaching folks from around the world (over zoom) how to sand, finish, and fasten parts for a specialized coaster and bottle opener set.

At the end of the woodworking session, Nick had a Q & A with participants, while everyone used their bottle opener to pop open a pint of Nick's favorite beer--Guinness Stout.

In addition to Nick's generosity, many other sponsors made this fundraiser possible including: Walrus Oil, Uneeda Abrasives, Guinness US, and Bohnhoff Lumber.

This fundraiser raised $55,000 to support Would Works' relaunching after 16 months of closure due to Covid.  Cheers to that!
