Open Bench Day

  • 75 US dollars
  • 507 East Shiawassee Street

Service Description

One of the most freeing parts of having a wood shop is being able to make whatever you want or might need in your home. Open bench day is to provide students with a full wood shop because not everyone has one at home. Students must have already taken the fallowing classes to qualify for open bench day. Hand tool 101, power tool 101, At least one Joinery class and at least one project-based class. This is required for safety of the shop as well as yourself and to ensure that students can mainly work independently on their project. I will of course be in the shop and available to help with any task or tool that you might need. The shop will have a selection of lumber available for purchases in house for your project. You are more than welcome to bring in a project you are already working on or materials you have, no need to purchase lumber here. I do ask that no one brings treated lumber of any kind and please make sure if you are using reclaimed lumber that is it free of nails or metal as this can damage shop tools. A lot of projects take longer than one day to complete so we will have a small amount of storage if you need to leave your project here and continue during the next session. This will be offered once a month and I will add more as this fills up.
