Students will learn how to sharpen and maintain edge tools, such as chisels and hand planes. Using both bench grinders and oil and water stones, participants will achieve the kind of tool edges required to make successful pieces of handmade furniture.
Bring your own chisels, hand planes, and any other edge tools you wish to sharpen. If you own water stones or oil stones, bring those too. Class is limited to ten students.
