For experienced woodworkers who want access to the woodshop, most weeks we are open for drop-in use four times per week:
- Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 12:00 – 4:00 pm
- Fridays 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm
- See the calendar for the current schedule - dates do change due to holidays and availability. Summer availability may differ from the above.
The drop-in fee is $8.00 per visit.
Attendees must supply their own material*, but have access to use our tools and equipment to work on your projects.
Reclaimed lumber of any kind is not permitted to be worked on any of the machines in the shop. Additionally, unmilled logs are may not be worked on the machines without proper holding jigs that you must supply.
Drop-In times are supervised by a knowledgeable team of volunteers! Supervisors are not instructors - they are there to ensure your safety, and can help with proper, safe, set up and operation of the machines. They are knowledgeable and able to give advice and answers to your woodworking problems.
Individuals with woodworking experience can volunteer to earn free drop-in passes for the woodshop. Please contact the facility manager at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more.
PLEASE NOTE: All individuals who wish to use the woodshop for Drop-In are required to have completed our SAFETY ORIENTATION class. The class is 2.5 hours and covers the safety information you need to know to use our facility. Upon completion of the Safety Orientation class, you will receive a SAFETY CARD which is valid for 3 years. You must present this card when you attend the drop-in sessions. The cost of the Safety Orientation is $25.00. Visit the classes list to enroll in the next available Safety Orientation.
* There is no storage space available to drop-in users. Attendees must transport their materials to and from drop-in. Attendees on Fridays who plan to attend both sessions may leave their materials during the dinner break.
