The Router table is a very versatile tool in any woodshop. It can be used to cut a variety of edge profiles, duplicate patterns, and make dados. This class will cover the safe use of the router table for several common operations. At the end of the class students will have hands on experience flush trimming pieces, profiling edges, and cutting dados and rabbets.
This is a two part class. In the first session we will cover the safe operation of the router table. Students will practice different cuts, changing router bits, and making accurate adjustments to the router table. In the second class we will practice using a pattern to make a small hardwood cutting board. The cutting board will utilize tongue and groove joints, pattern routing, and edge profiling.
At the end of the second class students should have a good understanding of how to safely set up a router table for basic operations. They will know how to change router bits, adjust the router table, and pick the right router bit for a particular cut. The students will have the confidence and skills to add profiles, dados, and other details to their own projects using the router table.
No prior knowledge is required. Basic woodshop skills are recommended, but not necessary. Students must be at least 18 years of age.
All necessary materials will be provided, and are covered by a $15 materials fee included in the cost of registration.
What to Bring:
Please dress appropriately for shop work: closed toed shoes, no baggy clothing or draping sleeves, no dangling jewelry or accessories, and something with which to tie back long hair. If you have them, you're encouraged to bring your own safety goggles and hearing protection.

The chilly stone caves beneath our Cambridge store hold hundreds of pounds of cheese, from 80-pound wheels of Comté to delicate-rinded blues to small logs of Belgian goat’s milk cheese destined for our in-house aging program. Go spelunking with Tyler, FK’s cave manager and Rory, our resident science buff, and explore the science and secrets of our caves. You’ll head underground with them to view and discuss the crucial role these temperature- and humidity-controlled rooms play in cheese aging, storage, and maintenance, and round out the lesson by tasting a few examples of what you’ve learned. Be prepared for cave-like conditions by wearing a sweater or light jacket and shoes that can get a bit wet.
