End Grain Cutting Board
(Suitable for beginners!)
The 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:
- Make a pattern
- Use a bandsaw
- Shape cutting board on a sanding machine
- Router a decorative edge
- Sand and apply a surface finish
- Fasten rubber buffer pins
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.
