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
  • Double Sided Tape

    Double sided tape has countless uses and the list continues to grow. Here are some of the favorites:

    • Attach patterns made of plywood or hardboard to your workpiece with double sided tape. Rough-cut the board close to the pattern then uses your router and a pattern bit with a bearing that follows the template to rout the board to final shape.
    • Stick carpet tape on the flaps of hinges to keep them from moving while you mark their location, drill screw holes, and position doors.
    • Make triangular clamping blocks and stick them to the outside edges of mitered corners with carpet tape. Then use regular straight clamps across the blocks for the glue-up.
    • To align false fronts on drawers, push the drawer carcass into its opening in the cabinet. Stick carpet tape to the back face of the drawer front. Then position the drawer front in the opening, making sure you have even gaps on all sides, and push the drawer front against the carcass. Pull out the drawer and screw on the front. You can leave the tape in place.
    • Attach auxiliary fences to your table saw or router table fence with carpet tape. They hold tight, and there are no clamps to get in the way.     Dave W - CUWS Staff
