Intro to the Woodshop

Woodshop 101An introduction to the Makerspace woodshop tools and standards. Process a board and make a chamfered take home project.

While topics like reading grain direction will be touched upon, the focus is how to safely use the Makerspace woodworking machines. The class is for both experienced woodworkers and those new to woodworking.

Use the Makerspace machines to cut, surface, plane, square and chamfer a piece of 2x6 lumber. Take home a chamfered sign board, shelf, plaque, etc.. Makerspace members can use the woodshop for personal projects after taking this class.
