Intro to Woodworking, Maker Village KC, Sunday, 18. August 2019

Want to learn how to cut safely with the miter saw, table saw, and other power tools commonly found in a woodshop? Intro to Woodworking will include guidance on things like how to position hands during a cut, when (and when not) to wear gloves, how to position the materials being held, and more. Participants will complete a small project using some, but not all tools listed below, and will allow you to continue to use the equipment during Saturday Open Shop sessions. Before coming to the class, please read through and sign the Waiver, Release of Liability Form.
Below is a list of most of the woodworking equipment in our shop. Tool use subject to instructor approval. Tools with an asterisk are what the instructor will focus on during Intro to Woodworking. If you want to learn other tools, come take an Open Shop session and we will teach you!
