In this 2 day class you will learn about working with Live Sawn Material. Ben Petersen will share what he has learned from his years building furniture from live sawn wood and operating a his sawmill. You will leave the class with a live edge slab of your choosing, that you have flattened, and a jig that you made so that you can easily do it again!
Day 1 You will select a slab and cut it to its rough dimensions. *Live edge material will be available for sale at the class, or you are welcome to bring your own material* Ben will also teach you how to construct your own slab flattening router jig which you will be able to use to flatten slabs of various sizes. Materials for the Router jig are included in the cost of the class. We will have routers available for use, but encourage you to bring your own router if you have one, to be able to customize your jig for your router.
Day 2 The real fun begins. We will start the day setting up slabs and Jigs, and get right to work flattening. Once slabs are flat we will discuss any necessary measurements for stabilizing as well as finish prep and final finish.
