Makerspace Workshop: Woodworking
July 12 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$50.00
Makerspaces are places in which people with shared interests can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. They include a variety of materials, tools, and equipment intended for users to engage in design thinking and explore creativity. This workshop focuses on building modular storage and workspace solutions out of wood that are ideal for efficiently operating within a makerspace. Participants will learn to use power tools such as drills, drivers, saws, and common woodshop tools (clamps, squares, levels). Other concepts covered include how to create strength in wooden structures, best practices for woodworking safety, and much more! This workshop earns participants 4 training hours that can be applied towards continuing education units (CEUs) issued through San Jose State University.
