Cutting & Serving Boards

Oct 28 & 29, 2017 9am ~ 5pm Saturday & Sunday

Instructors ~ Freddy Roman 

Level ~ Beginner

Tuition ~ $360.00 Plus materials 

NEW CLASS!  The cutting board/serving board class is a brand new offering here at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts and was specifically designed with two goals in mind: (1) Allow students to design, build, and take home 2 or 3 cutting/serving boards ranging from professional end grain cutting boards to more artistic and fun hand shaped serving boards.  (2) Be the perfect introductory woodworking class, incorporating both hand tools and machine woodworking, as well as stock processing, glue-ups, shaping, and finishing.  
 
The price of the custom cutting boards alone can justify the class price, but even more importantly you get two full days of woodworking experience and personalized instruction.  Freddy and Paul both enjoy teaching and offer this class as a way to introduce woodworking to a larger audience, so you too can experience the fulfillment of hand-crafting something for your family. 
 
Join us for a fun filled weekend of learning and making before the class fills up!  (maximum enrollment = 9 students)
Freddy Roman is a graduate of the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts full time program who runs his own woodworking business restoring and making furniture from his shop in Littleton, MA.

Nothing beats the cut and feel of a properly sharpened hand saw. Learn the forgotten secrets to filing your own saws and cut the (power) cord to your table saw! In this introductory class, professional saw doctor Matt Cianci will guide students through the critical steps of sharpening rip and crosscut handsaws used in woodworking. Students will learn the four functional elements of all western hand saw teeth including tooth spacing, rake, set, and bevel, along with the necessary tools and techniques used in sharpening. Matt will guide students through filing rip toothed and crosscut toothed saws in detail. Students should bring one of each saw to practice on in class.

Materials Fee, $20 (payable to instructor the day of class): The $20 fee will cover two saw files with handles needed for filing saw teeth. This will allow one file each for rip and crosscut teeth sized to your saws. All other saw sharpening tools including saw vises will be available for use in class.
