Piece by Piece: Laminated Pizza Peels and Cutting Boards
Learn basic woodworking skills and create a beautiful and useful piece at the same time in this introductory course. Using a variety of types of wood, from birch to maple to walnut and more, students will complete three projects: a practice piece, a butcher block-style cutting board, and a pizza peel (also useful for serving other things). The process is simple; the results are extraordinary. Students will learn clamping and gluing techniques, design principles and wood selection, and the use of handtools and power tools--including planes, scrapers, rasps and spokeshaves, jig saw, miter saw and table saw. Students will apply finish to the projects and learn how to maintain them for years to come.
