Give your mother the perfect handmade gift this year, or make it with her! Use reclaimed wood to make a beautiful serving tray.

Give your mom something amazing and handmade for mother’s day this year to show her how much you care.  Join us for this fun 3 hour workshop to make a beautiful serving tray out of reclaimed lumber.  The perfect way to serve breakfast in bed! Think your mom would enjoy learning how to make a useful item of reclaimed wood? Sign up for a couples ticket and make it with her!  And use our wood burner to burn a message or her initials into your tray when you are done!

Note: If the ticket type you want is not available, we may be able to accommodate! Email us at workshops@rebuildingexchange.org to ask.


Your safety is our highest priority at Rebuilding Exchange, so we have put safety protocols in place for all of our in-person workshops to keep everyone safe. Those protocols are:

  • Reduced class sizes (no more than 8 participants in a class).
  • All instructors, assistants, and participants will be required to wear masks while attending workshops (we do not have enough masks to provide to everyone, so you will be required to provide your own mask).
  • Instructors and participants may be required to have their temperature taken (using a touchless thermometer) prior to the start of the class.
  • Social distancing will be implemented when possible and appropriate.
  • Breaks will be provided during the class for handwashing.
  • Everyone should follow recommended safety precautions, such as coughing into your elbow and refraining from touching their face.
  • All of the tools, equipment, door handles, cabinet and drawer handles, etc. that are touched will be disinfected both before and after the workshop.
