Tools required for the CARPENTRY and BUILDING TRADES Associate Degrees, and for those enrolled in the one year of Carpentry as a Certificate Program.
The cost of these tools will range from $800. to $1000. depending upon tool quality. Purchase only professional quality tools. Students can purchase tools at places such as Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, and transport them to campus.
For more convenience, there are four area vendors that sell discounted tool packages and individual tools, to students; Fastenal, Tinkertown Supply, Curtis Lumber, and Ace Hardware. Tools purchased from Fastenal or Tinkertown can be delivered to the student's home during the summer, or, be delivered to the Carpentry Lab on campus during the first few days of Fall classes. Tools from Curtis Lumber(two miles from campus) can be delivered to the Carpentry Lab on campus during the first few days of Fall classes, or be picked up in person. Ace Hardware is located across the street from the campus and the purchased tools can be picked up there. The contact info for these vendors is:

*Tools can be delivered to campus, or picked up in person at the store. Please order early to allow reorder time for out of stock items.
Work boots and safety glasses are REQUIRED in all lab situations - students will not participate in labs without them. If you wear prescription glasses, prescription safety glasses will be required.
Your entire class will own tools similar or identical to yours. To decrease the possibility of mistaken identity, each tool should be clearly and permanently marked with your name and/or some form of identification number before you arrive to start classes.
Note: Dormitory regulations require that if "knife like" tools are kept in the dorm room, they must be in a locked container. If the tool bag or carrier above is lockable, that will be sufficient. Otherwise, a smaller metal toolbox that can be locked, will be required in order to hold the carpentry knives and saw blades.
