About this location
The Back Channel School of Woodworking resides in an old fire house just west of Pittsburgh, in McKees Rocks. PA. Focused on educating students on the foundational aspects of woodcraft, most of our classes are once or twice weekly on weeknights, and as such aimed at Southwestern Pennsylvania residents. We do have some shorter, 1-day classes and weekend classes for interested students from out-of-town or who can’t do weeknights.
Metered parking (25 cents for two hours!) is available in front of the building on Broadway, but please be aware that it is enforced once on Saturdays in the late morning. Free parking is available on nearby side streets, as close as the next block of Broadway where it’s all residential houses. There is also a large paved parking lot directly behind the building with free parking in any spot that isn’t marked reserved (numbered spots are okay).
You may enter through the garage door on the Broadway side of the building if it is open. If the door is closed, please enter through the man door in the back of the building.
