 +|Can I come by an open meeting and do a woodworking project?
 +|Unfortunately, only our members can use the power tools as a condition of our liability insurance.  Besides, our open meeting nights we don't really allow the really loud tools (planer, jointer, routers, saws) to operate due to the noise while people are socializing.
 +|-
 +|What are your normal hours?  I stopped by the other day and there was nobody there to show me around.
 +|We are essentially a "club" and do not have any staff.  Members have 24/7 access to our space.  The best way to see our space is to attend an open meeting (see [[https://www.meetup.com/ChattLab-Makerspace-Meetup/|meetup.com]] for how to attend an open meeting.
