Basic Skills: Woodworking Machines
Sunday, November 29, 2009 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
i3 Detroit has a full selection of Woodworking Machinery and our selection grows and becomes more specilized as the months go on. The basic skills series is meant to introduce people to the various tools around the shop and the safety that is envolved in using them. Nick Britsky will host the first in the series on the Woodworking Machines.
Join the class as we look at the Table Saw, Band Saw, Chop Saw, Router Table, Jointer, Planer, Drill Press & Various Sanders. After this class you will be certifed to use all the woodworking tools in the shop.
Once everyone has been taught the basics and safety, they will then be given a simple project to test each of the tools.
When & Where
i3 Detroit is a DIY collective in Ferndale, with tools and resources to facilitate a wide variety of projects. The name stands for "Imagine, Innovate, and Inspire".
Supported by its members but open to guests as well, i3 Detroit's facility hosts workshops and classes as often as possible. Led by volunteer instructors (mostly members), these are usually free, but may require a materials fee for participation.
When there's no class happening (and sometimes when there is!), you'll usually find members in the space, soldering, sewing, welding, sculpting, programming, woodworking, or just hanging out.
Founded in 2009, i3 Detroit has about 70 members and funds its operation mostly through member dues. Donations from students and guests are always appreciated, and have the potential to substantially increase our resources!
