[ARCHIVED] Campbell Center’s Renovated Woodshop reopens

It’s not surprising that area woodworkers might be a little anxious waiting for the woodshop at Campbell Community Center to reopen after a month-long closure. They’ve been using it for 42 years and it’s one of only three public woodshops in the metro area. Last year, some 1,700 people used the shop to build everything from cigar-box banjos to a desk for the workshop manager.

Campbell Center held a public “Grand Re-Opening” of the woodshop to commemorate the occasion on Monday. In a brief dedication, Recreation programmer Tom Powers pointed out the renovations, which include new flooring, equipment upgrades, repair of an inoperative table saw and the addition of an oscillating sander.

The Woodshop is open to all residents, age 18 and older on a drop-in basis, Monday – Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (the day use fee is $2.). Some of the large tools at the woodshop are: table saws, drill presses, lathes, routers, sanders, joiners, miter saws, and band saws. A free orientation to the woodshop is recommended for first-time users.
