I’ll be planning out another cutting board workshop. The workshop will be planned for April 6th and April 7th starting at 5pm on both days. This will be a 2 day workshop intended for those who are complete a complete beginner. You will be provided all the materials needed to make your cutting board including the wood, glue and all the finishes needed and will able to make your cutting boards from scratch. This is a great applied workshop that will take you through many of the woodworking tools you might use for any future projects and a chance to use some really cool exotic woods for your boards.
If you would like to see some of the past boards that were made by other VHS members or myself checkout our instagram: chop_x_chop
Spots will be capped at two people because of Covid. Please be sure to use the booking system to reserve a time slot for this as well.
If you just need to be checked out on the tools please let me know and we can arrange a separate time.
Cost on the workshop will be a total cost of 130 as follows:
$40 - Material costs (wood, glue, mineral oil, wax) - Paid to me via email money transfer.
$40 - My time (a few hours of instructional time) - Paid to me via email money transfer. The amount collected here will be donated back to the Hackspace to help fund improved dust collection within the hackspace when appropriate.
$50 - Tool Orientation for those who are not already familiar with the Table Saw, Jointer/Planer. - donation to VHS directly. Just show me an email receipt/donation to the drop box. I would encourage you to also earmark this donation towards the dust collection project.
