Tools & Equipment

Check out the tools you can use with a paid membership to Dovetail Community Workshop.

Safety is our first and most important priority. All shop users must participate a one-time safety orientation, where you'll make a mini-project while learning shop rules, layout and procedures. You can enroll here. Orientation will take approximately 3 hours.
