In our new series of woodworking classes, we’ve partnered with the ace woodworkers & all-around fun peeps of Wood Thumb! Offering these classes out of their woodworking studio in SOMA, Wood Thumb will teach you basic woodworking techniques as well as offer a primer on common woodworking tools, both power and non-power. Each class features a different project with overlapping tools and techniques, so feel free to take them all!
Live Edge Wood Slab Cutting Board:
Looking to embrace your inner lumberjack? Join Christopher, of Wood Thumb in SOMA, for an evening of woodworking where we ll cover basic tools and techniques, and you’ll go home with a finished product of a wood slab cutting board. cheese plate/ foodie display board or whatever! Its a gorgeous piece of hardwood with a live edge- you know the pretty exposed edge of the tree that’s all hot hot hot in design. You will learn how to cut, sand and prep these babies- then you can take it home and be like, I made this bitches! Or you can gift it. Awesome for entertaining and more. Pretty sweet!
None! This is an intro class, but we’ll be doing more advanced classes in the future. Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring an apron or we can supply one for you. (Did we ever mentioned sawdust makes one sexy cologne and makes a great dry hair shampoo...haha)
Wood Thumb was started by two brothers, Christopher and David, who set out to make a living by building beautifully designed products that embody sustainability, craftsmanship, and ingenuity. For the holidays growing up, their gifts always needed to be handmade which led to the creative, maker lifestyle they lead today. They"re self-taught woodworkers who have really mastered the craft from the years of custom work and running Wood Thumb. We have enjoyed their awesome wooden fold up booth at Renegade Craft Fair for years and amazing wooden bow ties (we even spied Questlove in one a few weeks ago).
