In this specialty workshop participants will be able to create their own custom cutting board measuring approximately 12" x 18" x 1 1/4" thick. This special workshop will have a Guest Instructor, Matt DiDomenico, who is local to the Doylestown Area. This workshop will be split up into 2 sessions/dates: (please make sure you are available for both dates listed)

SEPT 13th @ 6:30PM
AND
SEPT 20th @ 6:30PM

First workshop: {SEPT 13th at 6:30PM}
-Participants will get an explanation of the process of creating the cutting board and information about the exotic & domestic woods used.  The instructor will provide a large selection of wood so everyone can create the design they want. Participants will begin selecting pieces that will shape their cutting board-  there are so many combinations and patterns that you may go through prior to final selection. Once everyone makes their final selection of the woods they want to use, we can begin the glue ups. This is when all of the pieces selected are glued, clamped, and wiped clean. This will conclude the first workshop.

The instructor will then take all glue ups to his wood shop where they will be planed down and routered to prepare for second workshop. This step does include dangerous tools which are not safe to use in our studio.

Second Workshop: {SEPT 20th at 6:30PM}
-Participants will be able to take their cutting board from a rough slab to a finished product. This will consist of a lot of hand sanding. After sanding, participants will drill and attach rubber feet. Lastly, the best part, you will put the first coat of oil on your new cutting board. This is the moment when the board comes to life.
All guests will take home their new cutting boards, care instructions and some additional oil for future applications.

*Please note: All guests must wear masks in our studio*
Age Requirement: 16+
