Woodworking Tools: Power Tools 101 CHICAGO

02/11/2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm CST

Want to get into woodworking but don’t know where to start? Start here! Learn how to use basic power tools in our beginner tools workshop!

Start your woodworking journey with RX! Learn about the basic power tools you can use to make your dream woodworking projects a reality.

In this workshop you will learn tool use and safety and have fun doing it!  You will be trained to use a variety of power tools to begin your woodworking adventure. Following your hands on training, you will take a design from conceptualization to completion as you find solutions to everyday problems using reclaimed materials. 

What we promise you will get from this event is tool training, confidence, and fun using woodworking tools.

Please note that this is a skill building workshop. Participants will work with scrap materials to build something that will allow them to practice the new skills they learned. Individuals will not be making an item to take home with them (unless you would like your scrap!).


Participants will get trained on the tools listed below. You will then use the tools to complete a basic project.

Orbital sander

Band saw

Miter saw
