This course covers Red Tool Woodworking at the Makersmiths Leesburg location.

Makersmiths, Inc. members wishing to use the tools in the woodworking shop in Leesburg must complete a course of orientation and training and demonstrate competence with each tool before their name will be placed on the approved list of machine operators.

Completion of red tool training in Leesburg does NOT permit you to use the tools or shop in Purcellville.

While many of the tools in the two locations perform similar tasks, the tools in Leesburg are homeowner/hobbyist in size while the tools in Purcellville are industrial sized. 

Prerequisites - Must be 18 or older and have an interest in woodworking.

Class size is limited to four students. The class is a minimum of two hours but may take longer depending on attendee’s previous experience.

The class will start begin with a presentation and discussion covering shop etiquette, layout, hours, rules, material storage, and safety.   Then we will move throughout the wood shop where various machines will be demonstrated. Members will get an opportunity to practice on each machine. The machines covered in this class are: Table Saw, Band Saw, Jointer, Planer, Miter Saw, Drill Press, Spindle Belt Sander, Drum Sander, and Dust Collector.

Note: This class does not cover the use of the lathe or the router.
