If you're interested in someday building your own boat for a blissful summer on the lake... we hope you'll join us for the entire boat building series!
Watch our skiff being built in community at the SPTL shop as you plan for or tackle building your own flat bottomed boat. Series participants will get access to all the build content - including LIVE Demos, Online Instruction and Video Blogs (8 bundles of content showing you how to: dimension planking and transom stock, glue-up panels, understand epoxy, cut bevels and tapered rabbet, fit and fasten, rivet, spill and fit seats, seal and finish, and more.), Project Q/A chat sessions, and a chance to sit back and spin around the lake during our Summer celebration.   

No experience necessary!
* The full series may be purchased at any point in the build process.  When you register, you will receive all previously recorded/released content within a week.

Instructor Evan Mathiason is a lifelong woodworker. He recently completed an apprenticeship at the Arques School of Wooden Boatbuilding, focusing on traditional methods of construction, and is excited to share that experience with the MTL community through our Spring Project Series. Evan also has an interest in hand tool skills and green woodworking - including spoon and bowl carving.  In his professional life, he's worked in politics, art, and commercial photography. Recently,  he has been devoting most of his time to raising two young children, gardening and doing organizing work as a volunteer with MN350.  He lives with his wife and kids on the West side of St Paul and hopes to continue expanding his practice of wood craft.

MN Tool Library
The Minnesota Tool Library is a membership based non profit which offers members access to tools, workshop space, and community. By sharing access to tools, no one needs to own costly tools for occasional use. With MTL, we all have low-cost access to the tools we need, when we need them. Moreover, we engage the community to expand its collective skill set, helping each other to learn which tools to use for meaningful projects and connect with each other while doing it. Classes are vital to MTL’s mission. They open the doors to all to learn about different tools, how to handle them and empower community members to create projects of their own.
