Following the success of our Valentine’s Day Cutting Board Masterclass, it became clear that having 4 attendees would strike the perfect balance between individualized attention and tool usage.
We now have double the woodworking machinery, including 2 joiners, 2 thickness planers, and 2 tabletop routers so that you can flow through your cutting board project and focus on giving it the finish you want.
What is included in Timothey’s Introduction to Joinery?
As part of your registration in this workshop, you will be provided with a selection of beautiful woods suitable for creating your own completely custom cutting board. All of our woods have been selected for their tight grain patterns, which are ideal for extended use under even the most ham-fisted of meal-preppers.
The woods we have selected will give you a strong final product, along with a beautiful variety of colours including:
We provide you with all the raw materials you will need to create a beautiful, custom cutting board of approximately 1 1/8″ thick, and 12″ wide by 16″ long.
We also provide you with a packaged jar of Timothey’s custom-blended conditioner made with Beeswax (1oz) and Mineral Oil (1 cup). We recommend that if you are using your cutting board regularly, wipe it down weekly and apply a light coating of Tim’s Secret Stuff.
What Tools Will I Learn to Use?
You will learn to use 5 primary woodshop staples:
- Joiner – You’ll use this to create a flat edge and side on your pieces so that they can be joined cleanly.
- Thickness Planer – To get your pieces down to a consistent thickness, with flat sides
- Tablesaw – Once you have your pieces assembled, you will then use this tool to cut your board to proper size
- Router table – Get yourself those nice, round, and oh-so caress-able edges
- Edge sander – Great for an initial sanding of rough spots before using handheld sanding tools
In addition to our larger woodshop equipment, you will be guided in glueing, clamping and using our random orbital sanders to get your cutting board smoother than your uncle’s baldspot.
