This is a past event.

Makers will begin with unmilled lumber and process it through various woodshop machines to learn to mill or foursquare boards as well as move through all the steps required to complete a woodworking project. This introduction will suffice for the required certification to use Make’s woodshop. No prior woodwork experience is required.

Topics include:

  • Chop sawing longer lumber to size
  • Face jointing to create a reference face
  • Edge jointing to square edge #1
  • Planing to a specific thickness using reference face and proper wood orientation
  • Rip and crosscut table saw instruction to achieve designation size
  • Drill press instruction to achieve both through and depth-designated bores
  • Band saw detailing

By the end of this class makers should have a general understanding of how to mill wood using Make Santa Fe’s resources and will leave the class with a personal hat rack. The class also provides an overview of tool protocol; emergency procedures; general safety procedures for operating non-CNC wood tools; required clean-up procedures; and studio etiquette.

Anyone—with or without prior woodshop experience—who plans to use Make Santa Fe equipment must attend this class. Prior to this class participants should take the free Make Santa Fe Orientation and sign the Makerspace Agreement and Waiver. Participants may repeat this class at no additional cost.
