Patrons must clean up their work areas before leaving, but may clean up after paying for their time using the shop. Thirty minutes before closing, all work on projects stops, patrons pay their tabs, and then clean up their work areas.

Patrons may rent lockers to store their wood and projects in.  Wood that is drying (either glue or finish material), may be left out on the drying tables.  Wood that is simply left out on the counters is considered scrap (trash) after 2 work days.  Large projects that can't fit in a locker must have a project sheet attached showing continuous progress logged on said project.  If a patron has a large project, and is going on a deployment, they must remove their project from the Wood Hobby Shop, or it will be considered "scrap" after 1 week past the last date on their project sheet.

Children ages 12-15 require legal guardian supervision and must have a Parental Waiver form signed by their legal guardian; ages 16 and over do not require supervision.

Patrons may bring in their own varnish, paint, clear-coat and oils for finishing their projects. These items may not be left in the Wood Hobby Shop.
