When I was registering for classes last year, the only woodoworking class available was the “Woods Manufacturing” class. Now that I’m in it, I realize how intensive it is. The class, for most, has turned into a business class. The whole purpose of it is to form a business (registered with the state) and turn out woodworking projects to make a profit. The best part: the students keep the cash. Not a penny goes to the school. We are learning a lot about business structure, shareholders, etc. But what I like the most is learning how to operate the CNC router. It’s new to the shop and we’re using it to make custom signs. I don’t understand every aspect of it, but I’m getting there. All in all, I’m really enjoying the experience, and in the end I might earn enough money for a new table saw.
Here are some pictures of the current set-up.
Plenty of clamps here, that board isn’t going anywhere.
