Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m not sure if this is the correct forum. I wonder if anyone knows if there is a wood shop that can be used by the public in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach VA area? I have checked many resources and have not found one. Just wondering.

Are you in the military? If so most bases have hobby shops that include woodworking capabilities…

Good Luck!

Hi Herb,
I used to go to the wood shop on the Navy base. It closed last year due to budget cuts.

Look at your community colleges in the area. Some may have shops
and you can sign up for a class and get lots of access in most cases.

Was stationed at Langley Air Force Base. They has a nice wood shop there and you would pay by the hour and the shop had all the tools you needed.
