This is an IN-PERSON volunteer work event.
Meet, work, and learn at the WOO Volunteer Training this Sunday from 1pm-4pm.
During these three (3) hours we will have a meet & greet, continue getting the shop ready to reopen, and have a refresher on the table saw plus an intro to all of the jigs and accessories that we've upgraded for this machine in the last two years.
WOO is a non-profit safe space for underrepresented genders in our field. As such, participation is limited to non-binary, trans, and woman-identifying folks over the age of 18.
