Butcher Block 1/17 & 1/18

$225.00 (Sold out)

Winter is here and for many of us that means making chili.  To make chili you gotta chop meat (and vegetables) and there is nothing worse that chopping things on a flimsy cutting board that is just one step up from a piece of cardboard.  You don't need to be a woodworker or a meat eater for this one but it is a very hands-on class and we do recommend building your chili around a good cut of meat.  During this two day workshop we will mill American Cherry & Black Walnut lumber, glue-up panels, cut and reconfigure them into seriously substantial end-grain chopping blocks.  The finished blocks will be quite stout, measuring in at approximately 2.75" thick (3" with feet)  x 14.25" deep x 19"- 20" wide. Your chopping block will be 100% food safe and finished with a renewable natural oil, comparable to a John Boos butcher block only better...handmade by you!  

Class is limited to 4 and prior woodworking experience is not necessary.

1/17 (Wed) 5:30 - 8:30pm
1/18 (Thurs) 5:30 - 8:30pm

We will provide:  All materials, rubber feet if you want them and safety equipment
