Woodworking 101: Cedar BBQ Grill Scraper

Throw away that wire bristle brush for a 100% cedar grill scraper. To use it the first time, simply preheat your grill as hot as it will get for 15 minutes and scrape. The heat will burn perfectly spaced grooves into the cedar. Attendees will learn to use a table saw, bandsaw, router, drill press, belt sander and hand sanders. Then we’ll laser engrave it and apply a finish.

Wood Shop Power Tools

Learn the basics of the power tools in our woodshop. We will teach you how to keep your fingers while going over the basics of the table saw, miter saw, band saw, sanders, router, jig saw and drill press.

Laser Cut Notebook

We will use the laser cutter to create a unique, personalized notebook with an oak cover, cutout design and engraved name. No experience necessary. Skills: vector graphic design, laser cutting, minor woodworking. Personalized notebooks make great gifts!
