The OSC Woodshop, located in the North building, is a well-equipped shop available for the enjoyment of participants. We offer classes as well as open time where participants can work on a project or get assistance with a repair. The Woodshop volunteers are available to assist you while using shop equipment and offer guidance on projects.
