Interested in getting started into woodworking? Out of the shop for a while and need a refresher? Join us for Woodshop 101 and learn how and when to use the main stations in the shop, (Band Saw, Scroll Saw, Compound Miter Saw, Belt Sander, and Drill Press), and get comfortable designing and building projects in wood.
In this class, you will learn:
At the end of class, you will be confident setting up the machines and using them safely on your own.
Whom it’s for: Anyone aged 11+ (youth 11-17 must have a guardian present). No prior experience necessary, although previous experience with shop stations is always a plus. This class will be primarily aimed at beginners looking to get comfortable around shop tools/stations. The secondary focus will be on those who want/need a refresher course. This is the certification course to use these tools in the Seattle Makers woodshop.
What we’ll provide: Use of the woodshop stations and equipment, safety equipment (eyes & ears), and stock wood.
What to have ready for class: A can-do attitude!
