    This course will introduce students to the basic safety and operation of the power tools in the wood shop. Students will have the opportunity to operate a variety of tools to complete their individual birdhouse project. Tools that will be covered in this class include the panel, table, miter, and hole saws, drill press, nail gun, hand drill, and various sanders. 

    A small materials fee covers each student's wood and consumables for their take-home project.

    **Closed-toe shoes are a requirement**
    **Please wear appropriate shop attire: 
    Pants preferred, no loose fitting garments, hair tied back if shoulder length or longer.**

    This course will cover the basic safety and operation of the wood lathe. 

    Topics covered in this course include: preparing material for the spindle (chair legs, baseball bats), chuck turning (bowls, bottle stoppers), using chisels to round and shape the material, and basic finishing techniques. Other uses such as mandrel turning (pens, pencils, seam rippers, ice cream scoops) and metal spinning (copper and brass bowls, vases) will be briefly covered. 
    The first part of this course will comprise of a lecture and demonstration from the instructor- the latter part of the course will allow for hands on demonstrations.

    ** Please, no loose or baggy clothing. Hair that is shoulder length or longer should be tied back.**

    **Closed toe shoes are required.**

    Intermediate Woodworking will expand the student's knowledge of wood shop safety and the proper setup and use of specific woodworking machinery. Machines covered in this class will include the joiner, table saw, planer and router. 
     
    During this hands-on, two day class students will be creating their very own wood cutting board while learning effective glue up methods, proper sanding techniques and efficient router setup. 

    A $20 materials fee covers each student's wood and consumables for their take-home project.

    This course will be held Wednesday October 29th and Thursday October 30th from 6 PM to 8 PM.

    Prerequisite: Prior completion of Intro to Wood Shop Power Tools is highly encouraged.

    This class offers an introduction to the software needed to successfully operate the CNC machine (Vcarve Pro). This course will outline the workflow of taking your vector designs through tool-pathing software to generate g-code that can be used by the machine to cut student's project. Students will learn how to create designs for the CNC, basic toolpaths, cutting parameters, proper tool selection, and machining strategies. 
    The VCarve class is a prerequisite for the CNC Router and the Tormach CNC Mill.

    Suggested Prerequisites for this Course: It is strongly recommended that students have a basic knowledge of how to create vector-based files (i.e- .ai, .eps, .dxf, .dwg, .cdr file extensions) before taking this class. If these file types are foreign to you, it is highly recommended that you attend the Intro to 2D Vector class before attending this class. 

    **Closed-toe shoes are required as the classroom is located though the shop**

    This class introduces the student to the large format (4’x8’) Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) wood router and the principles of cutting with high speed milling tools. Students will be introduced to VicEngrave software, set-up and calibration, importing and running files and vacuum table operation. Students will execute a simple hands on project to demonstrate proficiency.

    Prerequisites: It is strongly recommended that members have a basic knowledge of how to create vector-based files (i.e., .ai, .eps, .dxf, .dwg, .cdr file extensions) before taking this class. If these file types are foreign to you, you should attend the Design 2D Vector Graphics class before attending this class

    CNC Fundamentals (Vcarve) is required before attending this class.
