Wood Preparation: Jointer and Planer

About This Class

Learn the basics of preparing wood for use in woodworking projects. This class will cover safe use of the jointer and planer. Process rough sawn wood by flattening, straightening, and squaring. Practice using the machines by milling wood and then gluing up boards to make a finished cutting board. NOTE: This class at our North Philly location does not include use of the wide belt sanding machine. For training on that machine, please see a staff member at our South Philly location, free of charge.
