Cutting our way into the new year!

Drew Kraus, a member at NextFab, made these beautiful butcher blocks and cutting boards using reclaimed hardwood found at The Resource Exchange, plus some scrap material collected from NextFab!   “I only got into woodworking mid 2019 but excited to move onto more and bigger projects.
