Trärummet rules and recommendations


  • Keep the door close at any time. Wood dust can damage the machines in the metalrummet.
  • It is forbidden to work with pressure treated wood in the room for health reasons.
  • You are only allowed to work with woods and some plastics in Trärummet. Metal, stone, bricks and anything else is forbidden to work with in the room.
  • Always use some form of dust collection when working with the machines (not mandatory for the drill press and only when your are sanding a piece on the lathe).
  • Always clean up (benches and floor) as soon as you are done and before you leave. This is a general rule for the makerspace, not just this room.


  • Attend a wood workshop intro before using machines that you are unfamiliar with.
  • Use eye protection and where applicable ear muffs when using machines.
  • Keep long hair, loose clothing and any kind of straps, cords, jewelry etc. tucked away when using machines. If the catch in a spinning machine it can end really badly.
  • Do not use gloves with the machines, if they get caught it will end badly before you can react.
