Is there anyone to help me with a question when I am working in the woodworking studio?

We have woodshop supervisors staffed in the Woodworking studio during the hours it is opened. They are trained with the equipment and can answer questions about safety, joinery methods, and anything else. If you have more involved inquiries about tool training and how to build certain projects, please feel free to register for one of our many workshops where those questions will be answered in depth.

If you do not carry the specific wood type I want to use, can I bring my own?

You are welcome to bring your own wood, however the Woodworking studio does have certain restrictions on exotic woods. You can find a list located at our studio or see a woodshop supervisor for more information. Wood that has been sitting out in a damp environment can also damage the equipment, so please see a supervisor for assistance.
