Intro to Woodworking Safety, build a votive candle holder.

* This class is a prerequisite for new members intending to use tools in the wood-shop. Existing members can also attend to get checked off. Non-members are also welcome to attend. Suggested class fee $20 donation with members receiving $10 off. Please RSVP before the class so we can keep track of how many kits we will need. Payments can be made in person or ahead of time at https://pay.reforge.io (enter class name in the notes section).

At the end everyone will get to make a wood votive candle holder to take home (time permitting, or finish later).

This introductory woodworking class will walk you through the fundamentals of safely operating most of the tools in the Reforge wood-shop or at home. You will learn to use tools like:

Table saw
Chop saw
Sanding station
Routing table

If you already know how to use these tools, then this class will be a refresher and you may learn some best practices. The focus of this will be on how to safely operate the equipment to protect you and the machines.
