CNC routers are some of the most powerful tools in our shop, capable of machining plywood, hard plastic, and even aluminum! They are big, loud, and can seem a bit intimidating — that’s why we offer a 6-hour CNC Safety class, so you can get a more thorough intro and more time on the machine. Get started Monday night! 

And, don’t forget, we host Mother Goose on the Loose story time every Wednesday morning at 10:30 — for free! Bring your little one for sing alongs, stories, and time with friends.

Register here. Cost an issue? You can always apply for a scholarship.
