Session 1: Students will review examples of finished cutting boards and will be given the opportunity to select their pattern and hardwood configuration for cutting board. Class will cover the basics of wood movement and gluing techniques using waterproof glue. Participants will then get hands on during the glue and clamp their projects. Culminating the first of the sessions, students will then learn the basic operation of the different pieces of machinery involved in the second session of the class. This includes the planing, band-sawing and routing of your cutting board project. 10-12pm
Session 2: Following a brief overview of the first night, students will take their projects from the classroom where they will plane down the cutting boards to the proper thickness; band-saw the boards to shape and rout the edges using a bearing guided template bit. A light hand sanding will follow in order to prepare their projects for finishing. Class participants will then be given a brief introduction of the different types of food-safe cutting board finishes and they will then apply a finish to their cutting boards. Small take home finishing kits will be available for purchase. 1-5pm
Our trained Staff will guide you safely through the steps of template routeing on the router table
Wood species availability will vary from cutting board photos. The drilling of small hole in each cutting board will not be included in the class.
