SCHEDULE OF WOODSHOP SAFETY AND EQUIPMENT TRAINING FOR FEBRUARY 2020.
The Sun City Oro Valley Woodworking Club requires prospective new members to undergo a woodshop safety and equipment training program before being authorized to work in the woodshop and operate the equipment. Because of the inherent dangers associated with operating woodworking machinery, we consider this training to be essential in the prevention of injuries and equipment damage. It also provides the benefits of helping members get the most out of the equipment and promoting and enhancing the enjoyment of woodworking.
The series of eight free classes begins 8 AM, Monday, February 3, 2020 in the Artisan Center Woodshop. They will continue in the woodshop every Wednesday and Monday in February thereafter. The last class in the series will be on Wednesday, February 26. Sign-up for the classes will be in the woodshop before the start of the first class 8 AM February 3 (come early). All SCOV residents who have an interest in woodworking and working in the shop are welcome. Those who have attended these classes previously who wish to review and improve their knowledge are also welcome to attend. Please bring your SCOV Facilities Access Card when you sign up.
