Woodworking Tools: Power Tools 101 CHICAGO

09/10/2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm CDT

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!

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.
