Woodshop Training Requests Q2 2021


I am a returning member from 2017, having just reactivated my membership and had discovered that my training has expired due to rework of the training process.

I was hoping that I could complete a proficiency test to bypass having to retake all of training given the pandemic problems. I am happy to pay the training fees to support the consumables.

Thank you,

Any of the teachers can run you through a proficiency test and make sure you’re up to date on the rules. :+1:


Thanks @IanLee, I am available tomorrow before 11 or weeknights after 7. I could even make some mid afternoons with this week if any teachers are available please let me know. Thank you so much!

I’ll be interested in the next training class as well. They fill up fast!

I have submitted a class for the 25th . It should appear in 72 hours on the calendar.

@Youssefb, any chance I can tag along on that next woodshop basics class on the 25th? I understand it says it is already full.

If not, can anyone spare some time to give me a woodshop basics course? I can pay a little extra, I just need to have access to the woodshop yesterday.

Hello, I’m brand new to DMS. I really would like to become educated/proficient with the CNC. When are intro classes? Thank you! Patrick

Welcome to DMS!!! @Team_Woodshop


A major shout out to @jast for consolidating all education requests into this thread and keeping woodshop from clogging up the top of Talk with multiple repeat threads.


I’d love to take a project class on making bowls on the lathe. I realize that this is the kind of thing best done on a smaller scale, because of the time required for each piece. I took the lathe class about 2 years ago, and probably need a refresher. Is there anyone who would be willing to teach this?


@Sam_Violett @dwolf @prl2018

This is the 3rd request I’ve heard for a bowl project class recently. Anyone up for teaching one?

We just got a donation of some great turning blanks to be used specifically for classes like these.

I was just talking to Sam about this the other day… I’ll get some up and advise dates on this thread by tomorrow.


If you do use the donated blanks, please take pictures of the class and end products so we can share them with the donor.

Thanks so much for setting this up! This is a project that I have been itching to do for a while now. I’ll be checking frequently to make sure I make the list!

I really enjoyed my last class. Is anyone teaching the Woodshop Lathe Basics prerequisite course soon?

Hallo. I was trying to sign up for Woodshop Basics tomorrow, but it filled up while I tried to recover my password. Any chance there is a waiting list?

And if not, when will the next one be?


Added two classes - will hit the calendar in 72 hours.
