Project – End Grain Display Board

End Grain Cutting Board

(Suitable for beginners!)

End grain cutting board-100The focus of the program is to create an elegant Timber Cutting Board from a timber of your choice. Available timbers include Huon pine, Myrtle, Sassafras, Eucalypt, Tasmanian Blackwood, English Elm and Macrocarpa pine.

Participants will begin by making a timber selection and personalising their design. Clients are encouraged to bring a suitable pattern or choose one from a selection in the studio. The tutor will then craft a cutting board and carefully demonstrate each step of construction.

Participants will learn to:

  1. Make a pattern
  2. Use a bandsaw
  3. Shape cutting board on a sanding machine
  4. Router a decorative edge
  5. Sand and apply a surface finish
  6. Fasten rubber buffer pins

 

Please Note:

We do insist that all participants commence their term by completing the induction project (End Grain Cutting Board) . This provides an opportunity to introduce foundation skills and the essential OH&S procedures.
