« Part 15: Thus endeth the lesson. Part 16 of End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 series no next part

I don’t normally worry about certificates for achievement… but this one is a little different…

A while back I was asked to teach a class online… and it was a lot of fun…and the certificate is for finishing the class.. that I was teaching…

Well this evening, my certificate arrived…

I would like to thank everyone involved with the class… and especially Ms Debbie.

I am proud to be a member of the LumberJocks Family…

I still haven’t made the board (it is on that to-do list that keeps growing instead of shrinking) but I enjoyed following along and picked up a tip or two as always. Particularly liked the tip about leaving both ends of the blank longer so you have nice handholds as you cross-cut…never thought to do that before :)

Thanks again

I will be back looking at that class when I get to my first cutting board. I am really trying to avoid that project because I suspect no one ever builds just one in a row…..............
