Solid Wood Cutting Board

November 11, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

Folks holding wood cuttingboards in workshop

Create your own finished cutting board. You will start by choosing a lovely piece of raw hardwood to cut down to shape on the chop saw, then add details with the drill press and routers. Lastly, you will sand your piece to a lovely finish with both the drum sander and hand sanding block. During this project, you will use a variety of power tools, hand tools, and butcher block oils to finish your project. This is a great beginner project.
