    Grace provided a wonderful intro to the compound miter saw, the band saw, and the jigsaw. I feel like I could now safely use these tools independently of an instructor.

    Explained very well for the average person with no previous knowledge of these skill sets to understand.

    I was really nervous and excited about learning to use the power saws in the workshop. Grace taught the course and did a great job explaining how to stay safe and operate the various saws. I feel confident that I will be able to use all three saws --- the compound miter saw, the jig saw, and the band saw with ease. Thanks to Perennial for being a great resource for learning in the community!

    The power tools 101 class is particularly helpful for people who have never laid a finger on those power tool triggers. Although I was already familiar with the chopsaw and jig jigsaw, it was great to put wood blade with the bandsaw. I'd always been a little intimidated it, but not anymore! Now The bandsaw is on my must have tool list! I also met some really nice people during the class. Thank you for offering this opportunity to me. Nice job!
