Power Tools 101 EVANSTON

10/07/2023 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm CDT

Learn about the basic power tools you can use to make your dream woodworking projects a reality.

Do you have power tools in your garage or storage unit you aren’t sure how to use? Do you need a safety refresher before you start that next project? If so, this workshop is for you.

We’ll cover how to safely operate 6 common power tools used for home improvement projects, including:

Cordless drill & driver

Circular saw

Miter saw


Brad nailer


You’ll have the opportunity for hands-on practice with each tool to build comfort and confidence with how they sound and feel when using them. We’ll discuss which tools fit various types of projects and how to set them up in your space.


• Additional parking available along Hartrey St. or in the lot at the southwest corner of Dempster and Hartrey.

• This workshop is 18+

• All materials are included in the workshop fee.

• Please wear closed toe shoes with a flat heel and avoid loose jewelry or baggy clothing. We will also be in a warehouse, so dress appropriately. Bring a shop apron if you have one.
