3D Cutting Board On A Bandsaw W/ Alex Snodgrass with Alex Snodgrass
Full

Saturday, December 10, 9 AM - 5 PM

Prerequisite: None
Class Size: 10
Description: Bandsaw expert, Alex Snodgrass, is coming to Columbus to teach his well known 3D Cutting Board Class and you don't want to miss this opportunity to learn from the best! The class is now a one day class with fewer students with less standing around time waiting for others to cut their wood or run it thru the planer. In the class, students will learn how to make a beautiful 3D, end grain cutting board similar to the one we have on display at the store! The cutting board makes a wonderful addition to any kitchen as a gift item or even as a way to generate a little extra cash. It only takes three different woods, maple, cherry and walnut to achieve this unique design. Students will also learn how to tune and maintain a Bandsaw which will make cutting, even complex shapes, easier than ever. From straight and angled cuts to planning, sanding, clamping and gluing, students will produce their own finished cutting board. This same process can be used in other areas of woodworking, such as making turning blanks for segmented turning. Alex will discuss the steps for making two other types of cutting boards and by the end of the weekend, students will have a seemingly complicated cutting board that will amaze their friends and family!
