The four-part series begins with “New Technologies for Cabinets, Furniture and Millwork” on June 7, covering rough mills, machining, sanding, software, tooling, finishing and finishing materials, and color matching.
The “Small Sawmill Profitability Workshop” is scheduled for June 14 and will cover ideas that owners can implement to run a successful operation. Demonstrations will focus on sawing, edging and resawing techniques.
