Learn How To Make A Cutting Board
January 20
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Each course is a single day from 9am to approximately 4pm. The course will be based around each participant building a hardwood cutting board from start to finish. Think of it as Woodworking 101 with no prior experience necessary. The great thing about making a cutting board is that many woodworking techniques are used for this fairly simple piece, making it an ideal introductory project. And the best part is each person will leave with their own one-of-a-kind cutting board that they can proudly say they made with their own hands.
