Carpentry Basics: Wooden Cutting Boards

  • 1140 Latta Street Chattanooga, TN, 37406 United States (map)

At this workshop, you will make your own unique cutting board. It will be approximately 20”x10”x1”, made from a beautiful piece of spalted poplar wood, and finished with a food-grade oil. We will have a few templates to choose from for the shape, or you can get creative and make your own! As part of the process, you’ll learn how to use a jigsaw, drill with a boring bit, and an orbital sander. This cutting board has many uses including as a great gift.
