For really the first time the woodshop is fully functional and useable, and I have time to spend. I’ll be doing woodshop orientations frequently over the next few weeks. I’ve seen a need for us all to get on the same page, have some protocols in there as far as waste management, project storage, cleaning and maintenance, and what tools are there and where they should go.
I’m not sure the best way to do these orientations, so these first few will be me fumbling through with your help to find the best way to get this done.
The goal is to give anybody, including a non-woodworker, the bare bones to be able to come in and use the shop safely and effectively. However, I’m not sure this can be done in a 1 hour orientation. I’m leaning towards breaking the full-meal-deal up into a few shorter courses, but we’ll feel that out starting tonight.
- General Safety, in depth safety for the major tools.
- Waste and project Management, Workflow
- Tools and capabilities of the shop
- Moving Forward, Further resources and ways to get involved
I have three booked in this week, one this evening at 5pm, just before maker mondays, one at 5pm wednesday for Hack Night, and one after the HCOS class is through this thursday starting at 2:30pm.
I look forward to getting things flowing up there and doing some good work together!
