A good introduction to woodworking tools, particularly a panel saw. If you've done basic woodworking projects around the house, this course might be a little too elementary. Otherwise, the instructor was clearly very knowledgable and helpful.

This was my second woodwork class at Makerspace and I enjoyed both. The teacher is friendly and helpful and the workshop is well setup. I plan to return with some ideas brewing.
