2016 has already been a busy year for the Tool Library! We have made 1,788 tool loans, we have welcomed 57 brand new members, and we have hosted 4 tool demonstrations and 1 workshop!
- Tool sale (!!):
Saturday, April 2, 9am – noon
We will be selling ladders, circular saws, chop saws, tool box, saw horses, and more! The early bird gets the power tool.
- Raised bed workshop (!!):
Saturday, April 2, 10am
After shopping for tools, join Rania Campbell-Cobb, a Tool Library board member and co-founder of Cloud 9 Rooftop Farm, to learn how to build a raised garden bed.
This workshop is made possible by the generous support of the Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation—more workshops to come!
- Circular saw demo (rescheduled):
April 11, 7pm – 8pm
The hand-held circular saw is a conventional saw for cutting wood, but it may also be used for metal, masonry, plastic, etc. Great for cross-cutting lumber and for ripping plywood. We will demonstrate how to use it safely + some tips for getting straight cuts, and introduce the worm-drive saw.
- Extension ladder demo:
April 18, 7pm – 8pm
This demo will take you through the basics of safety and use, including: the rope for raising and lowering, rung-locks, proper angle, and a secure base. The best part? This demo will teach you how to tie ladders securely for transport.
- Ideas for classes?
So far, we’ve heard that you’re interested in concrete pouring, router demo, and a tile workshop. Have another idea for workshops in May and later months? Know a qualified teacher, or are you one yourself?
