The hand plane is one of the most reached for tools in the shop. It’s used to remove material, flatten and square boards, clean-up joinery, and profile an edge. This tool, more than any other, has become synonymous with fine craftsmanship.

This workshop will teach you how to construct your own hand planes using a Hock Tools iron and hardwoods for the body and sole. You will create the pin and the wedge, glue-up the plane, and then shape the body. In addition to building the plane, you will learn how to sharpen the iron and tune up the plane to keep it singing.

All materials and supplies are included. Class size is limited to 8 students.
