Woodworking Induction Sessions

Woodworking Induction Sessions

Woodworking Induction

To be able to use our woodworking shop and our woodworking tools you must take this induction class. Please note that to be able to attend these classes you must be a Maker Community Inc member.

In this class, you will learn the health and safety aspects relating to all the machines and the wood workshop itself. You will also be shown how to use the tools, get hands-on time and tips and tricks for each machine.

You will learn how to use:

  • a thicknesser
  • a band saw
  • a table saw
  • a mitre saw
  • a jigsaw
  • a biscuit jointer
  • a disk sander
  • a belt sander
  • a drill press


If you are an experienced woodworker and believe that you already possess the skills taught in this session, please write us at maker.community.inc@gmail.com to arrange for an assessment to determine if we can approve you for machine use without the skill teaching session. You will, however, still need to attend a session to cover the health and safety aspects for the machine and space use.
