This day and a half workshop involves the planning and crafting of a small chess board.
We will cover the design, planning, execution and finishing. With the knowledge and practices outlined in this course students can create custom tabletops, cutting boards, game boards or patterned door panels. In addition to creating the chess board itself, we’ll take a look at chess piece design and simple sanding techniques used to create handmade chess pieces.
Students will learn laminating techniques, sanding, and finishing as well as best practices in creating small wood objects.
We’ll use the following tools: Chop Saw, Table Saw, Planer, Joiner, and an assortment of clamps and sanders.
Wood and other materials are included with the cost of the class.
