Buy Now, Pay Later
This is a hands on intensive five hour class on tuning hand planes, comprehensively renovating old, and fine tuning new, and sharpening them to a razor sharp finish every time.
We will also sharpen all types of chisels including bevel edge, mortise, butt & Japanese chisels.
Sharpening free hand versus sharpening with a honing guide discussion.
Handscrapers are extremely useful (cheap & effective) tools as long as they are sharp. We will sharpen rectangular & concave/convex hand scrapers and affect the burr edge.
Hopefully time will permit to allow us to also sharpen workshop & chef knives.
This course is hands on, so all students will have the opportunity to use sharpening guides, waterstones, steel lapping plates, burnishers and more.
Students are welcome to bring any personal tool for analysis for renovating or a sharpening strategy.
We will provide a coffee and cake break.
Saturday August 28th 9:00 am to 2:00 pm @ The Toolworks 5 Waverley Avenue Edwardstown SA 5039.
The total course fee is $120 which includes a take home (sharpened by you) hand scraper. The course is strictly limited to 6 students.
All attending students will receive a special 10% student discount on any purchases made on the day.
We will hopefully have time for a short tour of the Artisan’s Vise.
