This idea is to start a community woodworking shop where, for a monthly rental fee, residents can come and use a variety of woodworking tools to build furniture and other items out of wood.
The funds would be used to rent an appropriate space and purchase acquire a variety of woodworking tools. Funders would receive free use of the shop in exchange for their contribution. Members of the workshop could also run woodworking classes so that residents could learn how to build certain things (e.g. a wooden canoe).
