Fence construction for a Rebuilding Together project

We participate in woodworking related charitable activates to help communities in the Bay Area.

For many years we have participated in Rebuilding Together Program.

For about 15 years we worked with San Francisco Chapter of Rebuilding Together (originally called Christmas in April). We now work with the Rebuilding Together Peninsula organization.

Every year we provide Team captains and a large team of member volunteers to help rebuild properties for worthwhile charities or needed families in the Bay area.

Our members put many hours into these projects and enjoy helping our local communities in this way.

We also have a focus on Toy Workshops where we get together in a members workshop and produce wooden toys for distribution to deserving causes around the Bay area.
