This is a fast version of our regular hardwood cutting board class. All wood is pre-cut for you to speed up the process. This is good class for holiday present making since we will skip over the processing of wood.
Come and enjoy the scent of fresh cut wood by making a beautiful 11x15 hardwood cutting board from a variety of woods in Buffalo Lab Makerspace's wood shop. This is a beginner level class, no prior experience required. Perfect for the upcoming holiday season as a gift or to use and impress your guests.
In this class you will:
- Learn how to match wood properties to suit your intended project
- Become familiar with using the planer, router, and sander
- Learn strategies and techniques for gluing and clamping
- Learn how to choose the appropriate finish for your project
