Pay your tuition & lumber fee. Tuition for our standard 6-day course (April thru December) is $1,100.00. Tuition for our weekend warrior class (offered only in January/February) is $1,200.00. Lumber fee is $85.00 for all Practical Woodworking classes. You can pay in full (see #3) or in two installments (see #4).

3.

How do you pay us tuition & lumber fees? Great question. You have options: check (preferred) or credit card (includes a 3% transaction fee)

  • Paying with checks: Please mail us two checks written to JD Lohr Woodworking with the month and year of your course on the memo line.  Why two? Because it makes our record keeping easier on Larissa. We are great woodworkers but mediocre bookkeepers.

  • Paying with credit card: Yes, we accept PayPal. No, we cannot take your credit card over the phone. As mentioned above, there is a 3% transaction fee for using a credit card. Use the buttons below to pay your tuition and lumber fee. They are two separate transactions because, again, it makes bookkeeping easier for Larissa.

You paid, now where can you stay while you're here?

Check out Accommodations page for our local suggestions. The Comfort Inn in Pottstown offers a reduced rate to our students ($69/night if you use the code "JDL") but, you have to be sure to call the local branch directly as the 800 number and website don't recognize the offer code.
