Instructor: Andy Glenn
Class Description: Keeping tools sharp is a critical aspect to hand woodworking and one that effects the results we achieve with the cutting tools. Sharpening is a skill consistently put to use. Since tools dull as we use them, it is best to frequently sharpen them. The more tools are used, the more sharpening necessary.
In this one-day class, we will cover the most common methods and approaches to sharpening chisels and plane irons. You’ll leave this session with sharper tools and the knowledge and confidence to sharpen the tools in your kit going forward.
Tool Kit: Please bring your chisels and plane irons. We’ll discuss and diagnose older tools. Bring newer tools as well….they frequently need sharpening before use. If you do not have tools but would still like to attend, we will have extra tools around the shop to borrow and practice with for the day.
