Class Size: 12 max.

Every woodworker will acknowledge that sharp tools are absolutely essential to safe and effective woodworking. However, many have difficulty setting up an efficient sharpening station. In this one day workshop, each student will build his own “Ultimate Sharpening Rig”, featured in a recent American Woodworker Magazine article by Mario Rodriguez. Easily stored and readily accessible, this compact sharpening station can handle any tool from plane irons and chisels to turning tools and carving gouges; this rig can handle it all.

With this rig in your shop, sharpening will become an integral part of your woodworking instead of a dreaded chore to avoid.

Cost: $225 (including materials, but not including Lee Valley tool holder or high speed grinder)
