Intro to Woodshop

July 31, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:30 am


Are you intimidated by the power tools in the wood shop? Don’t be! In this quick 90 minute course, Andre will show you how to use all the tools in the woodshop safely and effectively and even how some old fashioned hand tools can sometimes be faster and safer! This class will prepare you with the following skills

  • Understanding of wood types, grain, and development of effective wood cutting strategies.
  • The proper use of saws depending on cross or rip cut properties and finish desired, as well as drilling
  • The use of proper hold down techniques for safety and part quality.
  • Proper selection and maintenance of saw blades and other cutting tools including drills and abrasives
  • How to purchase wood
  • Basics of Wood Joinery (Mortise and Tenon)

At the end of this class you’ll be confident to work in the Woodshop! NOTE: this course is NOT required to use the woodshop but highly recommended if you are not already familiar and comfortable with woodworking tools. And even if you are…you may learn some new tricks!




You’ll be able to work in the Makerspace woodshop safely and confidently. We encourage taking Fusion360 or CNC1-3 to further your wood project design and creation skills.

Plus, 30 minutes of 1-on-1 consulting regarding 1 personal woodworking project is included FREE with the cost of this class.
