In this BUILD IT YOURSELF class, taught by WorkshopSF co-owner and woodworker David Knight, you will make a beautiful wooden cutting board, constructed of top quality maple or walnut wood, and includes a dyed, leather handle. First, you’ll learn about all of the tools and building materials necessary for the project. After a demonstration of proper usage and safety, you’ll practice with each tool as you cut and assemble your cutting board. After you’ve sanded and added a food safe sealant to your board, you’ll get a mini-lesson in leatherworking as you cut, dye, and attach your leather hanging strap!
Each cutting board measures approximately 12″ X 16″ and comes in either maple or walnut, which you will select when registering for this class.
