What to bring for a semester at VWS
Woodworking tools are a major investment, so the Vermont Woodworking School provides every student with a starter tool kit to use while they're in the program. These kits are intended to provide experience with hand tools, enabling students to make informed decisions about which tools they want to add to their own collection.
Students that already have some tools of their own are more than welcome to bring them.
The materials we require students to supply for themselves are listed below.
Sturdy, Close-toed shoes
You want good traction and protection against dropped materials.
We may ask you to wear a mask in the shop—especially if we know there have been local Covid cases.
Keep your waterstones soaking in a plastic container so they're always ready to use.
