In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the craft of woodworking and to the woodworking facilities at Artscape Daniels Launchpad. Using a wide variety of hand, power, and machine tools, each participant will transform rough hardwood lumber into a finished and food safe serving platter measuring about 6-inches wide by 20-inches long. Throughout this process, participants will learn about the properties of different wood species, how to select material, how to safely and effectively operate woodworking tools and machinery, and how to finish and care for an heirloom wooden object.
Requirements: Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which includes safety glasses, hearing protection, and a particulate dust mask or respirator.
