I signed up to take a “carpentry” class at a local high school. This is an adult education class that is offered one day a week (3 hrs a night). I have been doing woodworking for over 20 years but I haven’t taken a woodworking class since high school (over 35 years ago). The wood shop has 2 rooms. One room has newer and more equipment but both are about the same size. For any woodworker this is like being a kid in a toy store.
It has been 2 weeks now and the instructor is still reviewing specific equipment so people know how to safely operate the machines. This is a slow and somewhat boring process but necessary because there a people in the class that have very little or no experience on some of these machines. Being a wood turner; I was grinning ear to ear when I saw the 7 Powermatic 3520B lathes. Here are a few photos of the shop.
