Hand Planes: Use, Tuning, and Restoration

  • Blue Heron Woodworking (map)

Either a treasured tool used every day or a dust-covered, rusty relic of a by-gone era flung in frustration to the darkest recesses of the workshop: Craftsmen either love or hate hand planes. Learn the secrets of this ancient tool and unlock its potential in this 3-hour class. You will learn how to sharpen, adjust and use a hand plane to produce gossamer shavings, the envy of all. You’ll also learn the steps to take to restore that garage sale bargain to a treasured woodworking tool. Bring safety glasses and an old tool if you like.
