Make a garden trug from old-growth cedar and copper in this intro to the Woodworking and Metal Fabrication studios.

About this Class

Trugs are great for harvesting veggies or flowers. In this beginner-friendly class, you'll use wood purchased from Makoto Imai, a master of Japanese woodworking recently profiled in The Seattle Times. You’ll cut the end pieces with a bandsaw, and use a bandsaw or hand saw to cut strips for the basket bottom and sides to the desired length.

You’ll then bend the copper handle, cut the copper connector plate, and use Chicago screws to hold the parts together.


A garden trug approximately 10" wide by 16" long


You must wear safety glasses and closed-toe shoes, tie back long hair, and avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry.

We recommend bringing your own safety glasses.
