Framingham Woodworker Hosting Cutting Board Class at Furniture Institute of Massachusetts

BEVERLY – Framingham woodworker Paul Jasper will co-teach a cutting board/serving board class at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts in August.

The class will be taught by Jasper and Freddy Roman on the weekend of August 5 and 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is a beginner level class. The cost is $360 plus materials.

The cutting board/serving board class is a brand new offering at the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts and was specifically designed with two goals in mind:

  • Allow students to design, build, and take home 2 or 3 cutting/serving boards ranging from professional end grain cutting boards to more artistic and fun hand shaped serving boards.
  • Be the perfect introductory woodworking class, incorporating both hand tools and machine woodworking, as well as stock processing, glue-ups, shaping, and finishing.
The price of the custom cutting boards alone can justify the class price, but even more importantly you get two full days of woodworking experience and personalized instruction, according to the Institute.
The class is limited to less than 10 students at the Institute’s location in Beverly.
Roman is a graduate of the Furniture Institute of Massachusetts full time program who runs his own woodworking business restoring and making furniture from his shop in Littleton.
Jasper has is an avid woodworker, studying at several of the Boston area furniture schools, and pursuing the craft for over a decade from his home shop in Framingham.
