Leave the power sanders at home and use handplanes, handsaws and cabinet scrapers to convert a rough-sawn piece of live-edge hardwood into a stunning food display board. The workshop ends with finishing and oiling the surface.
Cost: $60 + HST
Dave Young is from Northern Ontario and started woodworking upon moving to the Kingston area in 2008. He is a graduate of the St. Lawrence Cabinetry and Fine Furniture program and the current hand tool group coordinator of the Kingston Wood Artisans. Specializing in vintage tools and methods, Dave enjoys working with the local hardwoods of Eastern Ontario. The hand-tool slant to his woodworking projects began through the necessity of working in a small basement shop while not disturbing the small children sleeping upstairs. Since those days, he has embraced the quieter way of working and is mindful of how efficient traditional techniques can be.
He enjoys spending the summer months kayaking the local waterways, particularly the Admiralty Islands around Gananoque and is a certified guide with 1000 Islands Kayaking.
