The workshop is a small room at the back of the building where all wood work is supposed to happen. I’ll have you know it was referred to ‘very well kept’ on this year’s fire audit, not that reflects of the state of it always (or even the night before).
Here at bedlam we maintain a strong tradition (for better or worse) of training people in house. The vast majority of members (including most set managers), never had much experience or any on using tools before bedlam.
To use a tool you must be Tool Trained or stated as equivalent by the Set Manager
To become the status of tool trained you can either:
You must be tool trained individually on each tool that we have in Bedlam.
Please wear safety equipment. General safety guidelines you should follow:
Don’t use power saws when alone in the building, if something goes wrong you will regret it if there isn’t anyone else around to help you.
Unplug power tools when not in use and try to leave them in sensible places where you can’t step on them.
Use sawdust bags when possible to avoid putting as much sawdust in the air as possible. Sawdust in eyes or lungs or pretty much anywhere is bad.
The workshop used to be where the balconies where the wardrobe is now. After the 2016 fire audit, EUSA forced us to move it to where it is now.
This is what the 2014 workshop looked like:
This is what the 2008 workshop and woodstore looked like:
