You make a difference 

At DWD we are out to build community around using power tools. We are passionate about creating equity for womxn, trans and gender non-conforming folx in the field of construction, housing trades and amongst hobby tinkerers. If you’ve ever thought you couldn’t make something because of what you’ve been told, we want to empower you.

If you can dream it, we will teach you how to build it.

With your contribution we will continue to host community builds, tool training workshops, and grow our reach to connect with more people.

We are a fiscally sponsored project of Social Good Fund, a 501c3 nonprofit. For more information regarding donations, please email Meredith at


What kinds of projects do we take on?

In December 2018, we brought two transitional shelters that we assembled and insulated to Chico, California to support relief efforts after the Camp Fire. Watch a video of that project here.

In January 2018, we hosted our first community project building a skate ramp in the outer Sunset of San Francisco. Watch a video of that project here.
