Intro to Carpentry: Cutting Boards


Please note that this is a TWO-DAY class, and has the same start and end times on BOTH days.

Cutting boards, tabletops, butcher blocks, and furniture... many woodworking projects require a "glue-up." In this class, you'll make a simple cutting board, and learn each step hands-on, from cutting to clamping to finished product.

Skill level: Novice/beginner (ideally some experience with basic tablesaw use or a previous class with us); open to ages 16+ (minors will need a signed youth waiver.)

Topics covered:
* Cutting on tablesaw and chopsaw for rough and finish sizing
* Scrollsaw and bandsaw for cutting curved shapes
* Planing and sanding to achieve a flat, finished surface
* A variety of clamping techniques, including rope and wedges, to save on cost and workspace
