Woodworking Classes - PDX?

Howdy,
I tried posting this question a few days ago, but for the life of me I can't find it now.
I'm interested in any basic woodworking classes in the PDX area. I'm acutally in Vancouver and I have a rotating schedule, so it makes difficult.
Any pointers in a general direction would be great.
Thanks

Lane Commuunity College down here in EUG has some weekend community education woodworking classes. That's a bit far to drive, but have you checked with the community colleges in the PDX area to see if they have similar offerings?
(For those not from around these parts: PDX = Portland, Oregon. EUG Eugene, Oregon, about 120 miles south.)

Woodcraft in Tigard offers some weekend type classes, also Oregon College of Art and Craft offers all sorts of classes, I would say check OCAC first.

Check with Steve at Knight Toolworks. His classes on planemaking are $450 a day and include instruction on visualizing wood grain, cutting wood, sanding, scraping, planing, chisel use, blade angles and sharpening, wood finishing, sweeping up, and long lunches. www.Knight-Toolworks.com
(Hey, Steve, you should actually do something like this so we can do more with the site upgrade! Think it over.) ;)

I'll give basic woodworking class. I live in Shedd. Bring the beer and we'll see what we can cut off. Mike P.S. I live in Shedd not in a Shedd. That's between PDX & EUG

A frequent contributor (contrib. editor?) to Fine Woodworking magazine, furniture maker, Gary Rogowski offers a number of classes through his Portland, Northwest Woodworking School (I think is the name.) You should be able to google it up...

Visit Woodcrafters in Portland on Davis, one block east of Grand Boulevard (forget the numbered street at the moment, sorry). They have brochures there for several classes in the Portland area as well as demos nearly every Saturday. Great store and friendly, helpful staff. You'll also enjoy the specialty woods. They have a good supply of books also.
I'm on my way to a 15-minutes-from-now appointment and don't have time to look up the location (dial-up) for you, but I think they also have a website.
Be interested in what you find out. I'm considering some myself, with some real woodworkers, not like the jerk that "taught" the class that argued with me that my sewing cabinet would never work because the top drawer (for scissors, tapes, pins, etc.) was too shallow and couldn't be useful. Aside from we were told to design something useful for ourselves, he just couldn't process that a 3-inch deep drawer was basically useless for things that were less than an inch tall! Oh, well.
Good luck.

Also Rockler in Beaverton (Beaverton Town Square) and Woodcraft in Tigard. Woodcraft has more classes on a regular basis. As I have not taken any classes, I can't comment on their utility.
Oregon College of Arts and Crafts:
http://www.ocac.edu /
Gary Rogowski's Northwest Woodworking Studio:
http://www.northwestwoodworking.com /
You might also want to check out The Guild of Oregon Woodworkers:
http://www.guildoforegonwoodworkers.com /
Also check out community college offerings, both the credit and non- credit classes.
Clubs are good source for informal training and perhaps finding a mentor.

In a kitchen re-do the "certifiable kitchen designer" put drawers under the cook top meaning the drawers needed to be about 2" deep. They got the spice jars out of the cabinet and stayed close to where they're used.
