Join us for a special BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) centered class to practice the basics of Power Tools

Make a cutting board while learning how to use power tools. We will cover using the electric planer, ripping on the table saw, cross cutting on the miter saw, curved cuts on the bandsaw, and finishing. This is a great chance to get to know, or brush up on the most powerful tools in the shop. Take home your very own cutting board at the end.

THIS CLASS IS INTENDED FOR FOLKS IDENTIFYING AS PEOPLE OF COLOR, please do not register if you are a white-bodied person.
