Re: Wood shop that will plane slabs near Zurich

Search for a Schreinerei or a Zimmerei near you. A company that calls itself "Holzbau" may also be able to help.


ETA:
Come to think of it a Sägerei is probably be better equipped.

Yep. But there has to be at least one shop in the greater Zurich area that has one??? Positive vibes for at least one!

Re: Wood shop that will plane slabs near Zurich

Some of the Zurich community centres, called Gemeinschaftszentren, have wordworking workshops.
http://www.gz-zh.ch/?id=473
This is a free service to the public, and one pays a nominal fee for use and materials.

There are several dotted through the city. Searchwords are "GZ" (that's the short form of Gemeinschaftszentrum) and "Holzwerkstatt" (wood-workshop).

They may well not have the kind of equipment you need for this particular project, but the staff working there are sometimes carpenters, and may know where else you could go.

But usually you are required to be able to show that you have done a course or are qualified to use the equipment.

As I understand it, they're all about teaching you, right there.

Re: Wood shop that will plane slabs near Zurich

For joining a carpentry workshop I can recommend here:


http://www.dfreizyti.ch/


They are mostly swiss-speaking but I found them friendly and there are normally a few people who speak fluent english in the group, or it's a good chance to practice your German...
