You must be a current, active member to attend this event.

This class, in addition to Green Orientation (GO), is required in order to use the bandsaw without supervision.

This hands-on class will teach students the basics of the NL woodshop bandsaws. The class period is first spent discussing and demonstrating bandsaw anatomy, safety principles and practices, and rules of the road. The remainder of the class period is spent on several hands-on exercises for rip, cross and freehand cutting as well as resawing. If time allows, exercises may include cutting irregularly shaped objects like logs (or lawgz, if you're from the South).

Class required for everyone, regardless of experience level. Students who demonstrate the suitable skill and knowledge at the conclusion of class will be signed off immediately.
