Maintainers PL(A)YWOOD

In the woodshop there is a cupboard containing various of the more specialised/ delicate woodworking tools. Access is controlled to this cupboard via a combination lock (soon to be hopefully replaced by an ACNode), this is to protect these delicate tools as much as it is to protect the users. If you would like to be trained on any of these tools, speak to other members in the woodshop or post on the mailing list. Somebody will meet with you, check that you have a good understanding of already/ provide training on how to use and sharpen them, and you will be given the combination.

Contents includes but is not limited to:

  • A range of bench planes including #3, #4, #5 and a #7
  • Block plane
  • A range of chisels and gouges
  • Coping & fret saws
  • Tenon & dovetail saws
  • Japanese style pullsaws
  • Layout tools

These are often referred to as the 'PL(A)YWOOD' tools as they formally belong to the woodworking group within hackspace. This group is not currently meeting in an active way, but maintenance is being continued by a number of woodshop-focused members
