Wood Shop Millwork and Joinery Clearance Class



Currently by appointment only.

Learn how to responsibly use the Millwork and Joinery equipment in the wood shop and gain clearance to use it unsupervised. No previous experience required. Experienced woodworkers who can demonstrate the safe, careful, and clean use of the equipment without instruction can test out of the class with our Wood Shop Millwork and Joinery Clearance Test.

Equipment Included:

    • Resaw Band Saw
    • Jointer
    • Planer
    • Drum Sander
    • Router Table

By the end of the class, students must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the instructor that they can use the equipment:

  1. Safely: with consideration for both their safety and that of other users
  2. Carefully: without harming the equipment
  3. Cleanly: leaving the work area as clean or cleaner than when they started

This Clearance Class is open to all, but users must have an active membership to access the equipment outside of class time.
