Learn about research­ing and acquir­ing new or used machines/​tools. Once you have your shop space, outfit­ting it with equip­ment comes into play. We will discuss when to invest in a new machine or tool, resources to look at, and even how to plan for deliv­ery. It is always fun to bring home new equip­ment; this presen­ta­tion will provide you with the infor­ma­tion you need to make that happen!

Rebecca Juli­ette-Duex and Charles Thomp­son from The Chair­mak­er’s Toolbox will be joining us this session to share more about the orga­ni­za­tion, specif­i­cally the Toolbox and Living Tool Projects.

This program has been devel­oped specif­i­cally for wood­work­ers, but all mediums are welcome. The shared infor­ma­tion can be applied to personal, indus­trial, or academic shops.

The Furni­ture Society would like to thank the Schooner Foun­da­tion and The Bresler Foun­da­tion for support­ing this initia­tive. Without their support, the Nuts & Bolts profes­sional devel­op­ment program­ming and schol­ar­ships would not be possible!
