Woodshop Basics + 1 Month Community Membership
Secure your spot as a member with this combo offer. All members are required to undergo the Woodshop Basics course in advance, so we've made it simpler to pick up your spot in a course, and your membership in one shot.
Before getting down to business in a woodshop, you've got to know the basics. 'Woodshop Basics' covers the safe, and productive operation of major shop tools while making a simple hardwood cutting board.
This course is an introduction to the Ottawa City Woodshop which covers the safe operation of a table saw, planer, jointer and more. This is your first step to learning how to work safely and confidently in a woodshop and make the best use of standard tools you'll find in most shops.
All participants will leave with the knowledge they've gained about woodshop basics as well as a simple hardwood cutting board they've made during the process of learning about the tools.
Monthly members are entitled to unlimited access to the shop during operating hours (up to 27 hours/week and over 100 hours/month).
The shop is staffed with a qualified and trained supervisor ready to help you turn your projects into a reality while working safely and confidently.
The shop provides basic space for members to store work in progress, and an option to rent more space should you require it for larger projects. We also have a well-stocked selection of necessary supplies and materials available for purchase.
