Station North Tool Library Classes

The Baltimore Station North Tool Library is an amazing resource for DIY-ers of all types living in Baltimore City. The Tool Library is just what it sounds like- a place where Baltimore residents can rent the tools to complete home projects. There is also an "open shop" space, meaning an area where Library Members can come to work on carpentry, metalworking, etc with all the tools in easy reach. To use the library or open shop, and before taking any classes, you must take a mandatory safety class. After that you may begin signing up for any of their amazing offerings!

Their most popular class is the Chef's Knife making class. Students "cut steel, design and shape a knife blank, grind a secondary knife bevel, heat treat 1095 high carbon steel, make a handle from natural materials, and go home with your own chef's knife!" They also offer a huge variety of woodworking classes, from making a coffee table to your own skateboard. If your DIY blacksmith urge tends toward the practical, take one of their home improvement classes. Classes range from $65 to $220 depending on materials and time needed.

        I have tried to send an email to Tealparadise and cannot seem to send it. I am from Peterborough Canada and found the Crochet tips on Blankets getting wider to be very beneficial. This was happening to me a lot and I thank you for the tips to keep the blanket straight. I am a member of the Kawartha Hooks and Needles Guild in Peterborough and would like to publish this tip in our next newsletter with your permission. We have a lot of crocheters who would benefit from this information.
