    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. 

    Open to all skill levels. 

    No Prerequisites.

    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."

    This is an IN-PERSON CLASS.

    In this workshop, students will learn techniques for finishing wood using basic wood finishes from shellac and wax, to polyurethanes, penetrating oils, and newer hardwax oils.

    The instructor will discuss application methods for each type of finish. Techniques for brushing, wiping, flooding, and spraying will be covered, as well as when and why to use the different techniques.

    Students will practice different techniques on sample boards that they can take home for future reference.

    This class is part of our WOOD FINISHING series of classes.

    If you have a small project that needs finishing, bring it along!

    Class Schedule:

    Saturday December 10: 10am-5pm

    All skill levels welcome. No prerequisites.

    This is an IN-PERSON CLASS.

    In this workshop, students will learn basic chip carving techniques and geometry, while also creating a board for stamping pasta!

    The board features seven different carving patterns that will employ a variety of basic chip-carving shapes starting with the classic isosceles triangle and including squares, scallops, and long, straight lines.

    The project is essentially a carving practice board that converts into a beautiful, useful tool for the kitchen. And if you’re not interested in making pasta yourself, it makes a beautiful gift for the crafty cooks in your life.

    Class Schedule:

    Saturday December 10: 10am-5pm

    All skill levels welcome. No prerequisites.
