We held the first half of the two session class last Friday. Smashing success. We talked all about cutting boards and woodworking and furniture making, then proceeded to arrange and glue up some boards.

The class made 6 very lovely ones.

I was very enthusiastic about the whole thing and forgot to take real photos (and those who know me are likely not surprised), but will have some from this week's class as we finish the boards up.

We made Kentile-style boards, but had the added variety of thinner pieces of walnut and maple, as well as some cherry, and that all made for some interesting patterns and boards that can't be found anywhere else. I really like the idea of using something personalized you made yourself to make your dinner.

Looking forward to Friday.
