Wood Shop

In observance of government guidelines and HOA direction, the following procedures for the use of the wood shop will be necessary. If you are in an at-risk category, please consider carefully the risks before returning to the studio. If you are feeling sick or have a fever, please do not come to the wood shop. Staying healthy and safe is your primary consideration.

These restrictions will allow us to enjoy our studio again while practicing social distancing and sanitation issues. The HOA and the wood shop will review and update these guidelines as necessary to ensure the health and safety of our community. This plan must be followed by all members until further notice.

New Policy for Power Sanders 
enfeedia RSS feed publisherWe have seen numerous cases where the life expectance of the sandpaper used on the various power sands is cut short. You may have had the experience of bringing your project to one of the stations only to find the sandpaper is not useable and you have to delay your project or look for a less than desirable alternative method.

While there is no full proof way to manage this, we are implementing a new policy for all the power sanding stations. It requires that when you complete your operation on a power standing station, you clean the sandpaper with a sandpaper eraser. We have purchased erasers for each machine, so when you finish your project, clean the sandpaper. If you have questions on how to use the sanding eraser, the monitor will assist you.

We all enjoy our shop and the sanding stations help achieve our desired goals. Let's make sure everyone has a great experience.
