Shop Safety and Basic Rules!

  • Keep shop area clear of debris, cutoff pieces and other hazards.
  • Wear Eye and Hearing protection at all time using woodworking power tools.
  • Use of dust collector is required for any tool with a dust collection port. Dust is a hazard both to machines and to your health. Use of a Shopvac is required for any machine after use. Leaving machines with sawdust and debris on them could result in removal of authorizations.
  • Wear appropriate clothing. Tie long hair back, remove dangling jewelry, remove work gloves.
  • Take your time and think through proper technique. Accidents happen because someone is in too big of a hurry.
  • Think about what you are doing. If you are not confident something can be done safely, it should not be done. Find another solution.
  • Finally, as a matter of basic courtesy, clean up after yourself and return all tools to their proper place

Training vs Authorization

  • When Authorized to use tools, it means you have been authorized by a trainer to use the tools, this assumes you are a skilled woodworker and have woodworking know-how to use the tool. Authorization refers to the unique things that are required of a user at i3, one knows how to use the tool, maintain it, where parts and tools unique to the tool are kept, and the proper condition to leave it in.

Dust Control

  • Do not vacuum any metal objects with Large dust-collector machine, it must be used only for sawdust.

Raw Material Storage

Material Storage Policy

Sheet Goods Rack: (Wood or plastic) (No Glass or sheetmetal) 1/4 sheet (8 sq. ft.) or larger sheet goods, or boards narrower than 12 in. but longer than 4 ft.
A-frame Rack Exterior: Less than 1/4 sheet (8 sq. ft.) but at least 24 in. by 12 in. sheet goods, or boards narrower than 12 in. and between 2 ft. and 4 ft. long.
A-frame Rack Interior: Boards narrower than 12 in. and more than 4 ft. long, and not sturdy enough to stand up in a vertical storage rack.

Material Owned by Individual Members

Raw Material Space permitting, storage in the Sheet Goods Rack and A-frame Rack is available for the sizes and material described above. Your raw material must be marked with Name, Phone, Email, and Date, or Parking Permit, or it will be considered open-use and available for others to use. Your raw material should not be stored for longer than 90 days. After 90 days, even fully labeled material becomes open-use. We request that WS Parking Permits not extend for more than 90 days.

In-Process Projects: In-process projects can be stored during assembly if they do not fit in your personal storage area. Contact ZC to determine best place to store and attach Parking Permit. Project storage should not exceed 30 days unless arrangements made with ZC. Large in-process projects also require a Parking Permit and should be on a cart or some movable rack so that others may move it out of the way.

I3-Owned Material Storage

Any material marked with a date and “i3” or “WS” is reserved until that date for an internal i3 project and should not be used without a Coordinator's permission. After that date, it is available for open-use.

Open-Use Material Storage

Materials stored in the A-frame or the Sheet Goods Rack, without a proper label as described above, are available for open-use by anyone working in the space.

Open-Use Compensation: The intent of open-use material, whether donated or purchased with Wood Shop funds, is to provide a convenient source for small amounts of common materials. We do not have space or funds to provide a complete material supply for projects. If you use a piece of open-use material longer than 4 feet or larger than a quarter sheet, please deposit an appropriate amount of compensation into the Wood Shop Donation Box.

Material Donation: Members wanting to donate a manageable quantity of leftover project material may leave it in the appropriate location, space permitting, where it will be available for open-use. The Coordinators will periodically cull the stored open-use material to remove duplicates and seldom-used items.
