August 2015 – New Table Saw

Rick Brown with new SawStop table saw.  We’re happy to add this new piece of equipment to the Woodshop.  On this table saw, the blade carries a small electrical signal, which the safety system continually monitors. When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive. The change to the signal activates the safety system.

1/13/2014 – Announcing Membership Fee Reduction

We have good news from the Williamsport Community Woodshop. As you may know, we operate under the umbrella of the Center for Creativity, which is a non-profit organization.  The Center for Creativity has been granted tax credits this year which will be used by the building owner to cover our rent and utilities.  We may also be able to use some of those same tax credits to make needed upgrades to our facility and equipment.   With this reduction in our operating costs, we are very happy to announce this allows us to drastically reduce our membership fees in 2014.  We will also be offering “Day Pass” cards.

Prices starting in 2014 are:

Annual membership               $50.00 per month    or $500.00 paid as a lump sum

3-month membership           $55.00 per month    or $150.00 paid as a lump sum

1-month membership           $60.00 per month

Day Pass                                  $20.00 per day (minimum 5 day blocks)

11/9/2013 Gift Certificates Available

‘Tis the Season to be Woodworking’…we have gift certificates available that would be a great gift for a woodworker or aspiring woodworker you know for one of our new classes.  You don’t have to be a member of the Woodshop to participate in our classes. New classes starting in January are 1) build a bookcase and/or 2) build a table.  Look under CLASSES for complete information.

7/29/2013 Check out our new ‘official’ sign when you drive by or stop in.
