Woodshop

Students who build projects with materials such as wood, metal and plastic become better designers and builders through an understanding of the characteristics of these materials. They gain this valuable experience while honing their building and design skills in the College of Architecture's woodshop, located in Room 111 the first floor of the Langford B building.

The woodshop provides students with a wide variety of hand tools, power tools and machinery, professional supervision and a clean, safe working environment in which they can create high-quality projects while learning skills that further prepare them to excel in their chosen careers.

A fulltime supervisor and student workers, all knowledgeable in woodworking, metalworking, modern design and building practices, oversee the daily operations of the woodshop.

Among the woodshop many tools are present, a few of which are listed below.

  • three laser cutters
  • 3-D Printer
  • lathe
  • bandsaw
  • table saw
  • router table
  • drill press
  • oscillating spindle sander
  • stationary belt sander
  • panel saw
  • compound miter saw
  • planer
  • joiner
  • an array of hand tools

Safety

Woodshop protocols demand that all shop patrons make safety their utmost consideration. Prior to utilizing the shop, each student must pass a safety class, which consists of watching an online safety demonstration video, reviewing a safety manual, correctly answering each question of the online safety quiz, and signing a user safety agreement available at the woodshop.
