After you brush off the sawdust from the Intro to Wood Shop class you may consider taking our Intermediate Woodworking class. Part 1 covers the process of building your own face grain cutting board using both domestic and exotic hardwoods like walnut, cherry, maple and purple heart. Our instructor will not only cover general wood shop safety, he'll also outline the process of properly milling wood, how to do a successful glue-up, and finishing techniques. Machines covered in this class include the jointer, table saw, planer and router. During this hands-on, two day class each student will create their very own wood cutting board.

A $25 materials fee covers each student's wood and consumables for their take-home project.

This is a two day course held on May 6th and May 7th from 1 PM to 3:30 PM.

For students interested in learning additional woodworking techniques, MakerPlace offers Intermediate Woodworking Part 2: End Grain Cutting Boards as an extension to the Part 1 course. Part 2 is a one day course that teaches students how to convert their face grain cutting boards into end grain cutting boards. 

Suggested Prerequisite: Prior completion of Intro to Wood Shop Power Tools or basic woodworking skills are highly encouraged.
