Woodshop Badge


August 12th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm

Get a broad understanding of navigating a well equipped wood shop while learning the safety basics through practice. In this course makers will begin with un-milled lumber and process it through various wood shop machines to get hands on experience with a variety of tools in the shop resulting in a mini hat rack to take home with them!

What you’ll learn:

  • 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

Please note:
Workshop attendees will need to be properly outfitted to attend this course. This includes: closed toed shoes, a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and a way to secure long hair.

Safety equipment including protective glasses and hearing protection are provided by MAKE Santa Fe.
