Teaching a class…


For those of you who receive the E-magazine from Lumberjocks,  you will have read that I was asked by Ms Debbie to teach a class on-line..

The first lesson on how to make an end grain cutting board will be posted on lumberjocks.com in the first week of May… just after the Maleny Wood Expo..

This will not be like the usual tutorial which is a single or multi-part explanation of how to do something… this will be a series of lessons posted every three or four days so that anyone who wishes to participate will have time to complete each lesson before moving on to the next one…

Should you find you have a problem or need to ask a question… I am only a PM or email away…

As well as a written part of the lesson, I intend to take several photos as the work progresses and possible a few short videos as well…

For the fairly new people, there will be a beginners board as well as a slightly more intricate version for those who would like to stretch the boundaries and try something new. I hope that some of the more experienced members also take part… it would be great to see how they do ….

During the lessons we will cover the following..

Timber selection,

Dressing the timber,

Ripping the timber,

Grain orientation,

Glue up techniques,

Cross cutting and assembly,

Sanding,

Finishing…

All participants who complete the project can post it on line for all to see and when you notify Ms Debbie that you have finished, there will be a Lumberjocks’ Certificate waiting for you…
Please let me know if you would like to be a participant… use the comments section of the web site..
