Start your woodworking journey with our most approachable power tools. This class is up to 3 hours of fun and learning. Tool sign off is conditional on demonstration of competence during our woodshop open office hours.
- Sign off: Yellow Safety
- Tools Covered: Drill Press, Disc/Belt Sander, Scroll Saw, Oscillating Sander, Hollow-Chisel Mortiser, Grizzly bandsaw
- Prerequisite: Nova Labs Green Orientation*
- Mandatory Safety Dress Code: Woodshop dress code enforced. Comfortable closed-toed shoes; no loose clothing; and hair/beard tied back.
Class required for everyone, regardless of experience level. After taking this class, you are able to use the tools during our supervised Woodshop Open Office Hours. When you are ready, just demonstrate your acumen with the tools and receive your full, documented Sign off so you can use the tool independently. This process can be fast or slow, but it will mean you are a safe and practiced woodworker!
*You may take this class before taking GO but you may not receive the sign off and may not use the tools covered except when supervised by a certified adult or key member. You have 30 days to take GO or the sign off is forfeited.
