Chopping Board - Main Image


Lesson Objectives

Easy Navigation

The problem with uploading to YouTube is that navigation becomes hard, especially when trying to follow an online school. Unless it’s in a playlist (which can be troublesome to find) you have no idea where to start, what you need to learn, and why you need to learn it. This school puts everything in an easy to understand format and helps you get the most from this free course.

Bite-Size Chunks

I get it, it’s a pain in the arse when you need a reminder on a small process made within a video, yet you need to sift through a 40 minute long video to find it. Instead of 40 minute videos, this course is broken down into small manageable chunks meaning it’s far easier to find what you’re looking for.


There are no plans for this project. 

Tool List

You know how annoying it is when you get to a certain point in the project and realise you don’t have everything needed. I’ve got you covered. For each project there will be a tool list that includes everything needed to get the project completed. This tool list tends to a range of budgets as well as both hand tool users, and machine users.

If you are planning on making a chopping board while following this project, it’s absolutely essential you double check that the wood is food safe before using it. For example, timbers like Yew are extremely poisonous and should be avoided at all costs.

I would recommend using a close grained timber such as Beech or Maple as it will resist dirt and bacteria from gathering in the grain. This is preferable over timbers like Oak and Ash that have an open grain that is more susceptible to the above risks, even after finish is applied.

Above all, just make sure to do your research! The Wood Database is a great place to find out more about this kind of thing.
