There’s nothing more important about working in your shop than safety. If you want to have a long future in woodworking, you’ve got to know how to use your tools safely and properly.
This class will provide you with the fundamental information you need to safely operate the mainstream tools common to most woodshops. In addition to general safety information that you need in the shop, you’ll learn specific safety rules for these tools:
- Table saw
- Hand-held router
- Drill press
- Router table

Whether you’re a seasoned woodworker, or just getting started, you’ll get many safety tips from this class. In fact, as a seasoned woodworker, you may find that you’ve developed bad habits. Part of being safety conscious is learning the right way to do things, and unlearning any bad habits that you’ve developed over time. This Shop Safety Class will help you with both of these tasks!
Passing along your knowledge
One of the greatest things about woodworkers is their tendency to share their woodworking with others; neighbors, relatives, kids, Scout groups….woodworkers are a giving group. It’s important that as you pass your woodworking along to others, you’re teaching them the best, and safest, possible means of working with tools. Be completely sure that the methods you’re teaching are safe.
