Learn basic safety principles of key woodworking power tools with the goal of being checked out to use them during the BARN Woodshop's 30 hours a week of Open Studio time. This is a hands-on course and students will be given a piece of wood to cut and shape according to specific measurements.   (This is a companion to the Woodshop Tool Safety Checkout 2 class.  The Woodshop Tool Safety 2 class may be taken before or after taking this Woodshop Tool Safety 1 class.  Please see the calendar for more details.) 

To use the shop, you will also need to attend our free one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class.

Woodshop Tool Safety 1 will qualify you to use the following tools during Open Studio time and in classes that require certification in these tools: 

  • Table saw
  • Planers
  • Jointers
  • Chop saw
  • Drill presses


  • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Students and instructors will be required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, maintain a distance of six feet between individuals, and stay home if they are sick.  More details can be found here.
  • In addition to the mask requirement, you must wear closed-toe shoes, tie back long hair, and avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry.
  • You will get more out of this class if you first view videos that cover these tools. You can go back to these at any time to review safety protocols. Find them on the BARN website, BainbridgeBARN.org, by clicking on the Woodshop page, under the "Studio" menu.
  • In gratitude to our members for their continued support during the closures, BARN is offering all classes for free to BARN members through December 2020.  Members are still responsible for paying materials and mailing fees, where applicable. If a class is full, please add your name to the wait list in case a space opens up or we are able to offer another class. Check our calendar frequently as more classes are being added each week!
