Come to our workshop if:

- You love challenging yourself by learning new skills
You will learn how to work with hardwood, glue up joints, using power tools safely, shape and sand, and then apply a food safe finish.
By the end of the class, participants will be comfortable with the operation of various power tools including a drill press, band saw, miter saw, belt and spindle sander, and random orbit sander. All participants will be introduced to general woodshop safety and Maker Cube culture. During the class, everyone will learn about each tool, and get the opportunity to demonstrate their competency on each tool, by making their own cutting board. After this class, you will be authorized to use the tools independently as a member of Maker Cube at the discretion of the instructor. Please note, that based on attendance, this tool training may not provide significant practice with each tool, nor discuss any intermediate or advanced techniques.
