Intro to the Woodshop Class

Woodshop 101Introduction to the Bellingham Makerspace woodshop (AKA Woodshop 101). The class will cover Bellingham Makerspace woodshop standards including safety, allowable materials, mobile bases, power, dust collection, machine controls, etc. The class is for both experienced woodworkers and those new to woodworking.

The easiest way to get acquainted with the Makerspace Woodshop Standards and machines is with hands on board processing. While topics like reading grain direction will be touched upon, the focus is safety, e.g. cutting warped wood.

The take home project is a beveled sign board ready for engraving. Everyone will cut, surface, plane, square, bevel and miter a piece of 2x6 lumber. Makerspace members who show their ability to use the machines safely will be allowed to use the joiner, planer, tablesaw and mitersaw for personal projects.
