CBD101L21 Elegant Cutting Boards Workshop with Doug Forsha

December, 11 - December, 12 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM MST


In this fun two-day class, each student will make two custom cutting boards featuring ribbon inlays in a beautifully shaped maple base.

These cutting boards are also wonderful gifts, so we offer this workshop twice per year so you can learn new skills AND make great presents.

You’ll practice gluing up a wide surface, bent lamination, and router techniques.

You will learn:
• Edge gluing
• Joining and planing
• Router use
• Template routering
• Sanding and finishing

This popular workshop is limited to nine students and always fills up quickly. If demand exceeds the capacity of this workshop we will offer a waitlist and may add an afternoon session.
