Wood Shop Policies


Closed Toed Shoes Required               

Users must wear proper clothing in order to use the shop. Closed toed shoes are required to to enter the shop. CROCS DO NOT COUNT AS CLOSED TOED SHOES! If you are seen wearing crocs you will be turned away until adequate footwear is obtained. All dangling clothing and jewelry must also be removed before work can begin. 

Users are encouraged to provide their own safety glasses (available at the MICA Store) but some communal safety glasses are available at the shop. You must wear your safety glasses to use the tools.  Hearing protection is also strongly encouraged. 


If your project requires cuts made on the table saw, the Wood Shop Manager or Technician can do these for you. Table Saw cuts are the only custom cut service provided by the Fox Wood Shop. 

Please email ahead of time to schedule a time to makes your cuts with the following information: 

1. Class your project is for

2. Material to be cut (Ex. 3/4 ply, luan, poplar, etc.) 

3. Cut List***

*** Please know the measurements you need before arriving. Drawing lines on your material is not a reliable method for providing us measurements. If drawing the lines helps you determine measurements that is perfectly fine, but for the purposes of the service, a cut list is the best way to ensure accuracy. 

Examples of Cut Lists: 

2 @ 12" x 18"  (3/4 ply)

1 @  1 ft. x 2 ft. (1/4 luan)

4 @ 3 in. x 14.5 in.  (pine) 

Please Note: If you arrive without contacting the shop first, you may be turned away. Walk-ins will only be taken at the discretion of on duty staff.
