Wood shop equipment is highly dangerous, and we require that you take a workshop with us in order to stay safe. However, not all wood shop tools require authorization, so check the lists below before starting a project.
As a reminder, safety glasses must be worn at all times while using wood shop tools.
Do not use headphones to listen to music, wear long untied hair, dangling clothing, jewelry, or open-toed shoes while in the wood shop.
