Cutting Board Class Winter 2018
This is a great class for students looking for an introduction to our facilities and to working with wood in general. This class also counts toward safety certification on some of our more advanced equipment, for use during Open Shop Hours. Students go home with a cutting board and experience milling wood from rough lumber, using most of the tools in the woodshop.
Tools used: chop saw, jointer, planer, band saw, drill press, router table (for roundover bit), sanders (standing belt sander, disc sander, and random orbital sanders).
Open to all skill levels.
Instructor: Shalon Edwards
"My friends often refer to me as the Black Martha Stewart, but I prefer to go by Shalon. I will co-sign on the fact that I am creative spirit, and I love a good material transformation, whether it's flour, sugar and butter, wood and metal, fabric and thread, or just a coat of paint...I love it all.
"Through personal projects and several humanitarian trips to the South to rebuild New Orleans and the surrounding areas after Hurricane Katrina, I've gained experience in building and developed an affinity for power tools."
