New Program!

Independent Skills Development

If you would like to utilize the facilities at the CU Woodshop School of Woodworking to finish a project you started in one of our classes, or to build your own project on an independent basis, we now have a program for you. Regular time slots will be designated in our School Workshop specifically for Independent Skill Development (click for details).


Individuals who wish to sign up for Independent Skills Development must have first achieved a Safety Certification in the area of the shop that they wish to use. At this time, we are certifying people for:

  • Level 1 Woodworker – Individuals with this level of certification know how to safely use the basic tools and machines required for simple woodworking projects such as the table saw, bandsaw, miter saw, jointer, planer etc.


If you are an experienced woodworker and already know how to use most power tools safely and efficiently, you may sign up for only the Woodworking Safety I class and take the certification exam:


However, if you do not feel that you are skilled in the use of power tools, you will need to sign up for one or more of our Power Tool Proficiency classes:


These classes are limited to 4 students per class, for lots of personal attention. They begin in only a few days, and will not be offered again until August, so register now!
