A woodworking shop for children sounds like an unlikely concept—my kid, with a hammer?—but they’re in good hands with Butterfly Joint owner Danny Montoya, a credentialed early-childhood educator who knows his way around a workbench. The Outer Richmond workshop offers classes and camps for kids as young as 2. The tykes clock in with punch cards, don mini work aprons, and get to work on projects like name boards, keepsake boxes, tables, stools, wooden spoons, and more. Rest assured, there are no power tools involved: Instead, Montoya focuses on traditional joinery techniques using dovetails, box joints, and loose tenons. Advanced students (ages 10 and up) learn how to use chisels, hammers, and dovetail saws.
