In the Grand Rapids area, they did away with most all of them for the last 20 years. Now they are starting to come back. East Kentwood has a great woodshop with a CNC machine, too. Our wood guild and our turning guild both meet there . I have also seen the woodshop at Oswego high in Illinois and they buy over $70,000 worth of wood each year for school projects. Those kids make some expensive projects.

Look around for where you want to live and see what they are doing currently.
