3D cutting board with Alex SnodgrassIn the Advanced 3D Cutting Board with Alex Snodgrass here in the Acanthus Workshop. You can learn how to make a beautiful, mystifying end-grain cutting board.

Advanced 3D Cutting Board with Alex Snodgrass

This hands-on class begins by teaching you how to tune a bandsaw to make perfect cuts. Once learned, this skill makes future bandsaw use a breeze. You will then progress through the techniques required to make the cutting board: how to make dead-on straight cuts on the bandsaw, how to make accurate angled cuts on the bandsaw, and how to plane, sand, glue, and clamp the cutting board.

Using only three woods, walnut, cherry, and maple, you’ll work under Alex’s direction to make a beautiful and functional cutting board that you’ll take home. More importantly, you’ll go home with the knowledge and experience to be able to set up a bandsaw to make accurate cuts regardless of what you’re making. Oh, and you’ll be able to easily repeat the construction process to make enough 3D cutting boards for all your friends and family.

This is the smallest class Alex will teach anywhere in the country and the only 3D cutting board class he will teach in the region. Bench space will fill up quickly.
