MB555: Woodworking Merit Badge

Spend the day at TechShop and earn your Boy Scouts Woodworking Merit Badge with a Boy Scout-Approved Merit Badge Counselor!

Following a discussion of safety responsibilities in the woodshop, including woodshop hazards and how to anticipate and prevent potential safety issues, you will learn how to use basic handtools and woodshop tools. You will be challenged with using the tools as you learn to measure, create, and cut a project to take home.

Participants will work with a professional carpenter and complete all the steps for the woodworking merit badge. This course will also certify participants in the TechShop Woodshop SBU. This class is one day, from 9:30AM–3:30PM. Please bring a bag lunch and wear closed toe shoes. Students ages 12–17 may be enrolled for this course.

  • Read the Woodworking Merit Badge Book to understand what the course will entail.

  • Before class, read about and learn how timber is grown, harvested, and milled. Write a one-page paper telling how lumber is cured, seasoned, graded and sized, and bring it with you to the session.
  • Mandatory: Closed-toe shoes, eye protection, short sleeves, and a face shield

  • Advisable: Hearing protection and a particle filter or dust mask
