This course is for anyone who wants to use the following tools in our WorkSpace: router, jointer, planer, and table saw.
You will receive training on the safe handling of these tools and also learn how to set them up for your own usage and work project.
We will review safe practices and do demonstrations with safety equipment and jigs to assist you with these tools. You will time to practice using these tools and changing bits or blades for the router or table saw.

Do your own bike maintenance with our extensive set of bike tools (ParkTool) at the tool library.
We have two bike stands, provide basic supplies (lube, rags, etc.) but you will need to bring any replacement parts needed.
Note: chain cleaning is not available because we don’t have a sink.
Our resident bike ninja will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.
This DIY bike maintenance event will be held every last Wednesday of the month for the summer. Tickets via Eventbrite.
