||This class is an overview, primarily for beginners who want to equip and setup their workshop with the necessary stationary and portable power tools in order to become a more effective and efficient woodworker. With Mickey's 30 years of woodworking experience, he will demonstrate and explain to students the various capabilities of these tools that include table saws, band saws, jointer and thickness planners, drill presses, wood lathes, mortise & tenon machines, etc. Included in this overview are various routers and other useful portable power tools like sanders, biscuit joiners, and less known specialty power tools. Students will be given ample time to ask questions and try their hand with some of the machines. This class is a good starting point for those who wish to take advanced classes in the safe and proper use of individual machines that will be offered in future hands-on classes.
