Tools in this Category
The wood shops at BeAM contain a range of tools, including bandsaws, drill presses, scroll saws, miter saws, and belt sanders. BeAM provides limited hardware (nuts, bolts, etc.) and scraps, but users must supply their own wood for use in the wood shops. Check out the graphic below to see examples of tools found in the Murray wood shop.

Finished with the training, but looking for more resources? Click on the ‘Quick Guides’ for helpful reference material, or the ‘Project Ideas’ for design suggestions.
You must complete the introductory BeAM 101 training before you can complete any of the BeAM tool trainings. Learn more here.
All BeAM tool trainings contain an online module that must be completed before moving on to the practice project. Access the Wood Shop module on the BeAM Sakai site here.
After you finish the online module, you must complete a practice project for that tool. Wood Shop requires a staff-guided practice project, which means that you must attend one of the scheduled Wood Shop training sessions after completing the online module.
See a list of scheduled Wood Shop sessions on the calendar here.
