This cutting board project is the perfect introduction to working with hard wood!

About this event

MAKE IT!  This cutting board project is the perfect introduction to working with hard wood. Students will leave with a beautiful finished piece and get the opportunity to use a router, drill press, and orbital sander to shape their cutting boards. Lastly we will use walnut oil to achieve a hand-rubbed finish.

TAKE IT!  You will then take your cutting board home and display cheese or cut various food items on it OR gift it to someone you love and impress them with your awesome woodworking skills.

If you buy a Couples Ticket, then one cutting board will be made by the couple. If the ticket type you want is not available, we may be able to accommodate! Email us at workshops@rebuildingexchange.org to ask.

CAUTION: The wood shop can get cold during the winter months so please make sure to wear the proper attire.

Organizer Rebuilding Exchange

Organizer of Make It Take It: 1 Day Cutting Board

 

Established in 2009, Rebuilding Exchange is a nonprofit social enterprise that repurposes building materials that would otherwise devalue a community and provides job training for people with barriers to employment, making a commitment to education and economic development in Chicago's underserved communities.

 

Rebuilding Exchange has four distinct social enterprise areas that achieve our mission. Our 25,000 square foot retail warehouse provides affordable reclaimed building materials to the general public. Our public workshops educate Chicago-area residents on how to use reclaimed materials and live more sustainably. RX Made, our in-house custom fabrication workshop, demonstrates the potential reuse of our materials through the creation of beautiful, repurposed furniture. Our employment training program provides opportunities for Chicagoans with barriers to employment to earn transferable skills and certifications through on-the-job training and find pathways to permanent employment.
