Welcome to the Fabrication Studio at Richland Library Main. Library cardholders can attend classes as well as complete an orientation to work independently.
The Fabrication Studio is a fully-equipped woodworking shop that offers intermediate to advanced woodworkers the ability to take a project from concept to a finished piece or simply work on an element of a project they are completing elsewhere.
Just getting started with woodworking, or creating a smaller project? Check out our Makerspace too.
Customers will have access to larger, more powerful, and more precise equipment than consumer-level variations available at big-box stores—including a table saw, 15” bandsaw, 12” jointer, 20” planer, and other high-end woodworking machines, as well as a 150-watt CO2 laser that can cut and engrave a wide range of materials. The studio also boasts an assortment of finely-tuned hand planes, chisels, saws, scrapers, carving knives, and much more.

All Richland Library cardholders interested in using the studio will need to attend the orientation workshop(s).
Your orientation will also include a tour of our two woodworking spaces, the Makerspace and Fabrication Studio, and include a discussion on your past experience and how you plan to use the space. A waiver will be signed at this time. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled before an individual is approved access to particular pieces of equipment. The orientation process takes into account skill level and aptitude; the process may take less time for those with prior experience. *library card required
Please note, wait times for orientations vary from one to three weeks depending on availability.
The Fabrication Studio is open and available to those who have gone through an orientation unless there is a program or one-on-one appointment in progress. Customers are welcome to e-mail Brenton Sadreameli at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about studio availability.
If you have a project for which you would like assistance or advice, e-mail email@example.com.
