Class details

What is sharpness, and how do you achieve it? Learn to sharpen edged tools such as chisels and plane irons for effective, precision results in your woodworking. If you have one, bring a plane iron, bench chisel, spoke shave iron or drawknife you would like to sharpen; otherwise there will be tools to practice on. This class will focus on how to use sharpening stones, but we'll also discuss powered sharpening methods.

NOTE: We will NOT cover carving gouges, carving knives, or kitchen knives. Please DO NOT bring heavily damaged tools (severely chipped or gouged, bent, heavy rust or deep pitting). A separate class on edged tool rehabilitation and tune-up is available on request.

About the series

Our complete Hand Tool Academy series teaches fundamental techniques for traditional woodworking with hand saws, planes, chisels, scrapers, spokeshaves and more. You'll get a deep dive on a different set of tools each session. These classes serve as the prerequisite for our Hand Tool Joinery classes June 24-25, where you can learn to make mortise and tenon joints and build a drawer with handcut dovetails.
