About This Kool Project

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is a non-profit vocational school that has been providing hands-on education in traditional and contemporary wooden boatbuilding since 1981.  The school is accredited through the Accrediting Commission of Career School and Colleges (ACCSC) and is designated a Veteran Supportive Campus by the Washington State Department of Veteran Affairs. Our mission is to teach and preserve traditional and contemporary wooden boatbuilding skills while developing the individual as a craftsman.

Each year, national and international students come to Port Hadlock, WA to learn woodworking and problem-solving skills through one of three programs offered: Traditional Large Craft, Traditional Small Craft, and Contemporary Wooden Boatbuilding. Students are awarded a 12-month Associates of Occupational Studies Degree in Boatbuilding upon completion. Diplomas for 9-months of program completion are also awarded.
