There are several basic classes that you can take in the woodshop to create unique gifts or keep for yourself—how to make a cheese cutting board with wire cutter and how to turn a handle.

The cost of the class is approximately $25, which includes material. All material will be pre-cut, so you will be responsible for gluing, sanding, cutting, drilling, and assembly. The instructors will walk you through the design and gluing portion, which would then be followed by cutting your board to the desired length and width using the table saw. With the handheld sanding tools, you will create a smooth finish. After cutting the slot for the wire cutter assembly, you will drill the hole required for the handle with the drill press, then complete your project by assembling and testing. The only limitation is your imagination. The equipment used: table saw, planer, router, sanding table, band saw, and drill press. Classes are scheduled as the need arises. So, if you are interested in learning how to create a beautiful cheese cutting board, you can contact the Desert Woodcrafters shop and sign up for a class. As soon as we have enough attendees for a class, we will contact all interested parties and schedule a date.
