Description

In this hands-on workshop, participants will work with various woodworking tools to create their very own cutting board!

Each participant will start with an 8" x 12" board of Brazilian Imbuia hardwood. From there, you'll learn how to cut, shape, and treat your board using the provided tools and materials. A few of the tools you'll work with are: jointer, table saw, mitre saw, drill press, router, and belt sander.

No previous tool experience necessary. The instructor will introduce tool basics and safety so you'll feel comfortable and confident while operating the machinery.

Must wear closed toe shoes and preferably pants. For long-haired ladies, bring a hair elastic!

Come to have fun and make something beautiful.

* A percentage of this workshop's proceeds will go towards supporting our programs with Saint Louise House & American Widow Project. To learn more about these partnerships, visit here: http://womendesignbuild.org/about/#whatwedo
