Maker Orientation

Get an introduction to our space and some of our tools all while making some super cool coasters!

Class Description

Our Maker Orientation class is a great way to get familiar with our tools and equipment, learn about safety procedures, and make some really cool coasters at the same time. During this class you’ll get hands on experience with the table saw, planer, jointer, sander, router table, and many of our floor and bench tools. You’ll also walk away with a cool new set of coasters you made with your own two hands! Once you’re finished with Orientation, you will be able to access all of the services of the facility on your own! 

You do not need to take Orientation before taking any of our other classes, but is required if you’d like to use the Makerspace outside of classes.
