THIS CLASS INCLUDES A ONE-MONTH HACKPGH MEMBERSHIP!
This woodworking class will aim to educate students on basic concepts and safe use of wood shop equipment, while crafting a beautiful and custom wooden breadboard out of locally sourced hardwoods. Students will leave with an understanding and safety training on the following equipment and skills:
- Table Saw
- Drill press
- Band saw
- Palm Sander
- Palm Routing with templates
- Applying finish
Structure: This class will have one group session, where the entire cohort will work through constructing one breadboard collectively. Students will then have one month of 24/7 access to HackPGH to complete their own breadboard project. The instructor will offer two optional “office hour” sessions by appointment to aid students with their projects and provide further guidance. However, students are encouraged to utilize HackPGH at their own convenience.
We urge students to bring personal projects to work on at HackPGH during this membership period, and we support those who wish to continue their membership after class completion. The HackPGH membership is not limited to the woodshop area! Students will gain access to our entire shop including the 3D printers, CNC, laser cutter, soft arts, gaming computers, and much more.
Date and time: Initial class: 10:00am-4:00pm Saturday 12/16/23 (required) Lunch will be provided!
Instructor Office Hours: Optional and by appointment. Contact Kyle via email and/or Slack.
Requirements: No woodworking experience needed. All supplies and safety equipment will be provided. Attendance is required for the Saturday class session and the HackPGH membership orientation. Please wear closed-toed shoes and tie any long hair back for your safety!
Before independent use of the space, students must complete our standard HackPGH tour and orientation to cover safety and logistics pertaining to the space. You have the option of completing this orientation directly after the initial class, and/or the following Monday (Dec 18th) at 7:30pm. Note: Instructor will be available via email, Slack Messenger, and office hours. Please reach out if you need assistance beyond the available listed hours.
