The main point of the class is how to prepare rough lumber and get it ready for dimensioning. Typically you use a jointer, but if you only have a 6" jointer, how do you surface a 8, 10, or 12 inch board? I'll show you one method, and discuss another. Starting with a thick piece of pecan (probably), we'll discuss how to set up for surfacing the board and getting it prepared for dimensioning. You will have the option to re-saw your board, allowing you to make an even larger board with book matching and jointing. At the end, you can finish the board as a cutting board, or put it to use for another project. We will round over the edges on the router. This class compliments a glued up cutting board class that will also be offered. In that class, a glued up cutting board will be built from strips of different woods.
Prerequisites: Intro to Woodshop
Additional info: Students should feel comfortable around planer, jointer, hot glue gun, table saw, and router. This class will not include finishing oils or products. You will be working in pairs. For the most part, you can still remain socially distanced, since close interaction is not required in the pairs.
Price: $50 paid to teacher directly (cash, PayPal, or Venmo)
