Cutting Board Class

cuttingboards2014-11-10Our Local Woodcraft store ( Atlanta ) has a great line up of classes.   Their lead instructor for 12 years, Al Trevillyan is retiring for the second time.   So there were opening for new instructors.   I inquired and was offered the Cutting Board class.   I gladly accepted.   So I monitored and assisted Al in the November 2014 class.  My first classes will be in 2015.

The class was offered at Woodcraft Atlanta November 2014 from 10am to 4:30pm on two Sundays.   We had a full house of 6 students.

As the class progressed I took notes and took lots of pictures to document the process and the sequence.  I learned a lot !!!

We had mostly new woodworkers so these students learned a lot about basic machine tool woodworking and cutting board construction.

Al is an excellent instructor with many years of wisdom and experience.  He worked with each student gently guiding them and catching their mistakes.

The picture album below is only a small portion of the pictures.   It gives you a snapshot of the class but is not meant to be a complete narrative on how to make end grain and long grain cutting boards.  Signup next year and take my class.  Or find a local class.   There is nothing like hands on instruction to really learn from a project.  There is always more to learn than the topic.

    I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic blog!

      Thanks for taking the time to view my site and work. Two things contribute to the speed and cell phone response.

      First I worked very hard to convert to completely responsive WordPress theme and stay careful not to introduce any bad modifications.

      Second, I changed my hosting provider to what I consider a excellent top tier WordPress only hosting company, They have incredible cache functions and their security is mostly outside of my website, in a security layer. I did a Video post on this here…

      Again THANKS….
