Workshop

Tools and Machinery

Our comprehensive woodworking shop provides all tools required to produce anything from small models to full-sized building components. We train students in the safe use of tools and machines appropriate to their projects.

The shop is located in the basement of the Lasserre Building and has two major areas – machine and assembly. The machine room contains most of the equipment and is open over 50 hours per week. The assembly room, equipped with benches, power, and some machines, is available around the clock. Students can also sign out a large selection of hand tools and portable power tools for use in the assembly room, at your desk, or even outside of SALA.

For more information on specific tools, please see our tutorials.
