This half day course provides a great introduction to working with wood. We will consider the suitability of various timbers, and look at 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.
The design of a chopping board is a personal thing, and it’s for you to decide just what shape or form 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. If time allows, it may be possible to fashion a kitchen implement or two as well.
