In this an introductory woodworking class, participants are taught how to design, build, finish, and maintain an end-grain butcher block from rough lumber to finished product. Finished butcher blocks can be used for either decoration or use in their kitchen for heavy cutting applications. Proper and safe usage of the jointer, planer, table saw, and other wood working tools will be taught.


Safety Equipment

Please wear comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes to class. Avoid loose dangling sleeves, large jewelry, high heels, and neck ties. Long hair must be kept up and out of the way at all times. We will provide safety glasses, ear protection and dust masks, but if you’d like to bring your own, that is great too.
