Woodworking Equipment Training and Sign-Off

Woodworking tools are available for all members to use. While there is not a specific sign-off process on individual tools, members must be directly supervised by a staff or designated shop mentor while using any woodworking tools. Please discuss any project and woodworking tool use with a staff or designated shop mentor prior to using it. If you are in any way unsure about how to use a tool, please ask for demonstration and instruction. Staff or shop mentors may intervene if they see unsafe practices in the wood shop.
