This workshop introduces participants to the function and safe use of the most commonly used woodworking tools in a private setting. Participants will use the table saw, bandsaw, jointer, planer, and drill press to make a cutting board. Instructors will discuss how to select material, orient grain for a pleasing aesthetic, mill wood, and choose a proper finish. This is an excellent introductory class to learn about the concepts and machines used in woodworking.
