We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Would you like to build things out of wood, but are a bit uncomfortable with your circular saw (also known as a skill saw)? Here’s a chance to discover how to use your saw effectively, whether cutting 2×6 rafters or ripping plywood.

We’ll learn how to adjust the saw, tricks make sure your material isn’t binding when cutting, explore the all important safety elements, and use jigs to be more accurate and efficient. You will actually walk away with a sweet jig for cutting off lumber that works perfectly for your saw.

Registration Includes

Registration includes all instruction and materials. By the end of class, you will know how to properly use a circular saw in a safe manner. Each participant will leave with a jig for cleanly cutting off lumber.

Skill Level

This class is for anyone.

Best for Ages…

18 and older.

You should bring…

This will be a hands-on class, so bring your own saw to practice with (or you can use one of ours). And, as always, bring appropriate hearing and eye protection (and we’ll have extras, if needed).



Classes at 239 McDonnell Road (on the northern end of Duluth) may take place outside, or in a detached, unheated garage. Bathroom facilities are a portable toilet.
