Wood Lathe 101

If this training session is full, please sign up for the waitlist to be notified if a spot opens up in this session, or when another training session is scheduled.

Get started on the wood lathe! This training session is designed to give an introduction to the wood lathe- including setup, chisels, setting up blanks and how to do simple spindle work. And of course safety and clean up.

About the instructor: Richard has used wood lathes for a long time and has done a variety of lathe work over the years mainly for pleasure. He’s looking forward to getting members trained on the lathe so that others can get working on projects needing spindle work.

Women in the Woodshop

Every 2nd Monday of the month from 6:30 – 9:00 pm Yukonstruct is now offering drop-in space for makerspace members who identify as women, trans, or gender non-binary to come and use the woodshop in a safe and supportive environment. 

How it works:
  • You must be an active makerspace member to attend, and you must have previously taken the woodshop safety orientation class.
  • While there will be a makerspace volunteer or staff member present, this is not a programmed event – there is no set project, taught class, or agenda for the evening.
  • There will be a limited supply of project kits available for sale (first come first serve) with instructions that you can work through.
  • You could come with your existing project to work on. You could also come to practice using a piece of machinery, to get advice from other members, or just to meet other woodshop makers like you in our community!
Our goal is to make sure that the makerspace is inclusive of everyone. Although we have a welcoming community of makers, we also understand that the woodshop can be an intimidating space for some.
