We’re building beautiful Hexagon Shelves again! Our facilitator got sick and we had to cancel the last one. For this edition of the Intro to Tools Workshop, we’ll be building hexagonal shelves that hang on your wall! Learn how to use a table saw, mitre saw, drill and other basic tools. As per usual, this workshop is intended for woodworking beginners and will focus on safety around power tools. We will assume you have never touch any of the tools before. We’re doing 2 workshops on the same day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Space is limited and our workshops sell out quickly! One hexagon/participant.
$20 for members, $25 for non-members
