If you're itching to start making sawdust in the wood shop (but the last time you used a band saw was middle school shop class) then this is the course for you!
Intro to Wood Shop Power Tools outlines the basic operation and safety of a variety of wood working equipment including the table saw, miter saw, band saw, drill press, nail gun, hand drill, belt sander, pedestal sander, and drum sander...phew!
This is a hands on course that includes instructor demonstration as well as the opportunity for each student to practice on the equipment. By the end of the course each student will complete a wooden tool box, perfect for your future woodworking endeavors! 

Check out what past students think about this class:

"(The instructor) was knowledgeable, helpful, friendly (but not overly) and very professional.  She just had the perfect demeanor for the purpose of both imparting the importance of safety but also the enjoyment that can be had in learning these skills.  I just loved her and her energy."

A $10 materials fee covers each student's wood and consumables for their take-home project.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete any necessary paperwork. Our shop can be a little tricky to find so we suggest giving yourself extra time for traffic and parking.
