If you didn’t already know, the Station North Tool Library is also a public woodworking shop; although folks work with all kinds of materials in there besides wood! The Public Workshop is available for FREE to library members two times per week: Sunday 11-5p and Tuesday 5-8p, BUT you have to have completed our mandatory Safety Class in order to access those Open Shop hours.
Safety Classes are offered several times a month, 2 hours, $25, register HERE. During the class you are introduced to shop etiquette, machine safety, and you even get the opportunity to start using some of the basic machines by making a small project!
If you would like to start using some of the more intimidating machines and are totally new to the woodshop environment, we recommend you then take: Woodworking I and II.
During Open Shop hours, members who have completed the Safety Class may come in and use the machines they are “signed off” on; that process is explained in the Safety Class. Please note; however, that while there is always a Shop Monitor on duty, their job is to oversee everyone and they may not have the ability to provide a member one-on-one instruction for an extended period of time or project assistance. For that kind of in-depth instruction we offer classes or you may Hire An Expert to assist you with your particular project and skill advancement. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding the Public Workshop, Classes, or Hire an Expert.
You may see him working away diligently on Sunday’s in Open Shop, or manning the library on Wednesday nights – David – one of our amazing volunteers also happens to be a pretty awesome designer and craftsman on the weekends! He spent the summer making this amazing media console for his records/player and these gorgeous nightstands. We are going to convince him to teach a class – hahahah!
