Partic­i­pants will be guided through the plan­ning process of setting up a shop. We will cover workflow/​layout, machine needs/​egress, tool orga­ni­za­tion, and basic elec­tri­cal infor­ma­tion. This program is a great place to start envi­sion­ing build­ing a new shop from scratch or convert­ing an exist­ing space into a shop.

Our special guest, Dan Carlson, will join us for this session. Carlson will share his exper­tise in setting up shops in acad­e­mic, indus­trial, and museum settings!

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!
