About this Event

This class will introduce you to the Dallas Makerspace Wood Shop, including shop rules and general expectations, and woodworking safe/best practices. Major woodworking tools will be covered, including the use of the jointer, thickness planer, table saw, and miter saw. Basic steps of squaring up a rough piece of lumber will be covered via a hands-on approach by walking and talking through the standard process.

Do not be late. Students not present at the beginning of class forfeit their spot.

Special Considerations and Warnings

You must be over 18+ to attend this class.

Appropriate eye protection is required. DMS does make necessary protective gear available, but feel free to bring your own. Appropriate workshop attire is required including short sleeve shirt/top (or long sleeves with cuffs rolled above the elbow), and sturdy closed-toe shoes or work boots. NO: overly loose fitting (i.e. baggy) clothing; unbound long hair; dangling/swinging jewelry and other accessories, or gloves.

We will meet in the woodshop or just outside the woodshop double doors. You risk forfeiting your spot if you are not there at the start of the class. Please be prompt.
