Class Projects

We love to highlight select projects from our student classes. Our latest submission is from Kathy who took one of our popular Figured Cutting Board classes. See details and images from her experience in the class here.

School Facility

Last Fall we cut the ribbon on the newest of our three facilities and followed that up with a Grand Opening of our School of Woodworking. We believe it provides the very top-tier in educational facilities for woodworkers. View the video above to see what great things people are saying! Better yet, come and see the Midwest's Premier Woodworking Destination!

Tip of the Week
  • Glue Quick Tips

    Glue is a common and accepted method of attaching parts of many wood projects.  Listed below are a few tips associated with glue.

    1. Polyurethane glue is a moisture cured glue and top results can be achieved when the user moistens both surfaces with water just before clamp-up.

    2. When gluing wood together using epoxy, the longer open time the better the bond.

    3. Using an old credit card or stiff plastic card can be used to spread glue evenly if one edge is cut with a pair of pinking shears to create a serrated edge.  Use the card with serrated edge to spread glue evenly to large areas, similar to a trowel. 

    4. Oily woods, such as Teak or Cocobolo, yield a stronger bond when the glue joint is wiped with acetone or alcohol before applying the glue.  Dave W -CUWS Staff
