What's Included

Learn how to take that old garage sale find and turn it into a precision woodworking tool. Students will be encouraged to bring an old hand plane to restore. Students will learn how to find and buy good antique hand planes and we will discuss collectible hand planes. Students will learn how to properly clean, remove rust, oil and care for their hand planes. The second session will involve how to sharpen your hand plane to a razor sharp edge and tune it properly to make it work for you. We will discuss different methods of sharpening and different hand plane setups, so students can choose what works best for them. Students will be allowed open studio time on Sunday during the week of class. On this day, students are welcome to come to the shop and use the tools to catch up on and refine the classroom project.
