Description

Ages 18+ or teens accompanied by an adult.
With Maverick Edwards

This is a two-day class. It meets 10AM-2PM on Saturday, Dec. 9 and 12PM-2PM on Sunday, Dec. 10.

Every chef, pro or otherwise at one point has owned one of those terrible plastic cutting boards and pined for one the wooden ones that they’ve seen on just about any cooking show on TV or the internet. They’re a great first project for anyone looking to get into woodworking...and the secret is, they’re not hard to make. This class will teach you the basics; which species of wood make good boards, how to cut the pieces you’ll need, techniques for glue up, and proper food safe finishing.

  1. Students will learn how to:

    • Choose suitable wood(s) for a cutting board

    • Design a pattern of their own choosing and cut the required pieces to size

    • Techniques for gluing and clamping multiple pieces at once

    • Preparation for finished after drying

    • Food safe finishing.

  2. Students will work with

    • Table saw

    • Mitre saw

    • Hand planes and power planer

    • Drum sander

    • Clamps, clamps, clamps and more clamps


Please bring:

  • Dust mask, hearing protection, safety glasses if you have them. Make Nashville has a limited supply of disposable ones.

  • (Optional) if you have any small pieces of wood you’d like to incorporate into your board you’re welcome to bring them.

Students taking this class should have previously taken the Wood Shop Safety class from Make Nashville since we will be making heavy use of power tools. If you haven’t, please note that during registration and be prepare to arrive 30 minutes early so that the instructor can brief you on safely using the tools prior to class and can adjust the class’s content accordingly. We are offering woodshop safety on November 15, so if you would like to take that class, you can sign up here:
