    "An observable, measurable level of achievement or performance which is applied to a woodworking skill or knowledge area."
    Definitions of Skill Standard Levels:
    Friday; August 18, 2017 - These Levels were improved and modified during the development process. The initial three levels were reduced to two, with the addition of a "Machine Specialist" credential and an "Area Specialist" credential. These two are still under discussion and development.
    Level 1- Basic woodworking skills - Output oriented
    Entry level skills. Woodworkers at this level will have skills sufficient to do woodworking tasks as assigned, work safely, and be open to learn additional skills. Level 1 woodworkers will require a high level of supervision; have limited ability to make independent decisions.
    ...
    - Be able to select adhesives, abrasives and fasteners to meet the specifications
    . Use hand tools at an advanced skill level, as appropriate
    Level 3 – Advanced woodworking skills - Solutions oriented
    Woodworkers at this level will be able to apply their skills
    Under Development: Machine Specialist and knowledge of woodworking to solve problems of design and manufacturing. Level 3 woodworkers will work independently and be able to supervise and instruct Level 1 and Level 2 woodworkers; will have a high ability to make independent decisions.
    Level 3 woodworkers will:
    - Select materials and joinery to meet job requirements
    - Make advanced machine and tool set-ups, including the use of CNC
    - Create programs for CNC operated machines
    - Design and build jigs and fixtures to meet manufacturing requirements
    - Calculate machine and tool feeds and speeds, based on tooling and material specifications
    - Use hand tools at a high skill level, as appropriate
    Area Specialist
    The outline above is not complete, and is intended as a beginning. I have not included such things as basic machine maintenance (installing knives, adjusting for heeling, squaring and paralleling fences, etc.), tool sharpening, finishing, or other important woodworking skills, including project planning and people skills.
    While we have three levels for each tool, there must be an understanding that some tools may NOT have a Level 1 due to their complexity; or might not have a Level 3 because the tool is so simple. Most important, we must not confuse 'job descriptions' with observable, measurable operations for a specific tool. The 'collection-of-tools-and-levels' which would make up job descriptions will come later.

    Saber Saw (Jigsaw or Jig Saw)
    This standard refers to the handheld, reciprocating blade saw motor with a flat plate or shoe on which the tools rests while guided in the cutting work. It does not cover the larger rough cutting tool often called by the brand name Sawzall.
