Create Your Own Hardwood Cutting Board with Frank Lagace
Come create a beautiful 12-18" hardwood cutting board during two, four-hour sessions. The class will discuss the types of wood being used, such as sappala, purple heart, African cherry and hard maple. The wood will be cut to size on a table saw. Then, using a joiner, students will make sure all pieces are the same size before gluing the various pieces together and allowing them to dry overnight. On the second day, the class will use planers to insure that all boards are level and the same thickness. Students will then use a router to create a well and handles. Finally, the boards will be sanded. All materials and equipment will be provided.
