My name is Scott Stevens and I have an idea to create a community woodshop.
My goal is to create a friendly environment for people to explore woodworking. People will not only come to use the woodworking machines but also to learn something new, to share knowledge, and to be a part of the community.
There will be a wide range of classes offered for all levels of woodworkers (including children) and the woodshop will carry professional grade machines with some specialty machines not normally found in the typical hobbyist shop.
Every member will be required to attend a safety orientation. This 45 minute orientation, will focus on safe habits and proper operating procedures. Members will be required to demonstrate a clear understanding of how to safely use a machine before operating it and assistants will be on hand to answer questions and make sure everyone is using safe techniques.
I want to open Community Woodshop in the Eagle Rock vicinity of Los Angeles county.

Please let me know if you are interested and whether or not you think this is a good idea. I need to make sure there is enough interest before opening. Thank you in advance for your comments/insights.
