Wood Shop Power Tools


Learn to safely use the most common power tools. We will go over the basics, then use the table saw, circular saw, compound miter saw, band saw, jig saw, sanders, router and drill press – everything you need to begin making some very cool projects!

By the end of the class you will know which saw to use when, how to select a blade, and change it.  You will have experienced cutting with each saw, sanding with each sander, and drilling and routing with the drill press and router.  You’ll know how to safely secure your work.


Please, no open-toed shoes or loose fitting clothing.  No experience necessary.  Class size is up to 5 people.  Classes may be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not met.  If this is the case, students will be notified 24 hours in advance and fees will be refunded.
