About

  • Planers
  • Jointers
  • Chop saw
  • Drill presses

Details

  • This is a companion class to Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2, which may be taken before or after this class.
  • To use the shop, you also need to attend the free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop.
  • Wear safety glasses and closed-toe shoes, tie back long hair, and avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry. We recommend bringing your own safety glasses.
  • You will get more out of this class if you first view videos that cover these tools. You can go back to these at any time to review safety protocols. Find them on the Woodworking & Small Boatbuilding Studio page.
