Chopping board on 17/02/2018 @ 10:00am

This half-day course provides the keen learner with a great opportunity to try a spot of woodworking, and to go home with a hand-wrought item of genuine usefulness and beauty. You’ll learn about the suitability of different timbers for the job, and gain an insight into the basic processes involved in the conversion of a rough-sawn plank to a smooth and prepared board. Everyone will get the hands-on chance to (safely) machine their own length of timber down to the thickness they require before starting on the next step of the process.

The design of a chopping board is a personal thing, and it’s for you to decide just what shape yours will take. After transferring your preferred profile onto your hardwood blank, it’s over to the bandsaw to rough it out. The job is then refined with handtools and cleaned up ready for a finish. As well as progressing your woodworking skills, this class gives you get the chance to make something truly personal which you’ll enjoy using every day.
