What you'll do

You'll be quickly immersed into your woodwork session, by choosing the wood you want to use for you cutting board, and glueing it together, using jointers. We'll then have time to discover all the workshop, and the way tools work. This way, you'll then be able to use drill presses, jigsaws, sanders, planers to create exactly the shape you decided. I'll be here all along to help you on all the steps, make you discover details and learn great DIY tricks!

Michael

I'm the founder of Les Affûtés, a place dedicated to beginners willing to learn manual skills. I've dedicated the last few years to learn woodwork, and was impressed by how proud that makes me feel when I create something myself and how confident, compared to when I work on a computer. I wanted to spread this feeling to our generation, where a lot of us feel helpless when we have to create with our hands or repair something. Les Affûtés project was born from this frustration, and the willingness to help people who know nothing about manual skills. As a woodworker, I'm particularly fond of working on simple projects, where the priority is given to the sensations of the wood: the texture, the smell, the touch. I'd be delighted to help you discover this world, my world.

Where you'll be

We'll live this experience inside the Affûtés universe, a 4000 sq.ft place dedicated to the love of wood and craftmanship. We'll begin on the first floor, sunny and quiet, before going down to the "tools cave" to work with heavier machines. Luckily, when we need to, we'll take a break in our little kitchen, with a cookie (or two...) and a hot coffee!
