Welcome to SFCWS

San Francisco Community Woodshop is a volunteer-run co-op shop. Our membership ranges in woodworking experience, from 0-40+ years. Among us are engineers, doctors, designers, artists, accountants, lawyers, and cabinetmakers. Many of our core members began woodworking at this shop years ago under the instruction of furnituremaker John Sheridan.

Now that John has retired, our goal is to continue his tradition of teaching and to establish a community where people can learn and practice woodworking.

Our Space

Our 2,500sqft shop, founded by John Sheridan, has been a furnituremaking and teaching shop for 15 years. We are equipped with just about everything you need to produce your masterpiece.
