This class will introduce you to the router, the single most versatile tool in the woodshop. With the right accessories, the router can do it all. Learn to use a router safely and a few basic techniques. The class covers basic operation, safety concerns, and a few particulars of using these tools at Nova Labs. If you complete the class and demonstrate your proficiency, the instructor will certify you to use the routers.
Your certification will NOT be given until the router TOOL sign off is recorded on your sign off list on nova-labs.org.
DO NOT use the routers without supervision by a steward until the actual tool sign off is recorded.
We recommend you attend open office hours and practice with a project, then contact the instructor to schedule the proficiency test as soon as possible.
