About the Course

The milling process transforms rough lumber into stock that’s ready for use in any woodworking project. In this hands-on class, you’ll learn how to flatten, square, and join rough-sawn wood to specifications, and then glue up a cutting board to keep. Completing this class grants access to the jointer, planer, and wide-belt sanders at each location.

  1. Instructors will introduce the jointer and planer to members, and have them use the material to practice on the machines while reviewing the safety, risks, and uses.
  2. Members will then have the opportunity to lay out the boards, and go over the glue-up process to clamp their boards up.
