About the Course

Learn the basics of preparing wood for use in woodworking projects. This class will cover the safe use of the jointer, planer, and time saver machines. 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 from exotic hardwoods.
Machine/tool access: Jointer, Planer, Wide Belt Sander, and Biscuit Joiner
  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.
