Please note that this is a TWO-DAY class, and meets 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)

Topics covered:
* Cutting on tablesaw and chopsaw for rough and finish sizing
* Various tools to achieve a flat, finish surface (hand planes, hand-held power planer, benchtop planer, belt sander)
* A variety of clamping techniques, including rope and wedges, to save on cost and workspace
* Sanding and finishing
