Tool Sharpening Course for Woodworkers

No matter how much you spend on your tools, if they're not sharp, they won't work! Woodworkers generally see sharpening as a chore that takes them away from woodworking when they should see it as just another part of their woodworking activity.

Learn the basic techniques to get you from dead dull to razor sharp in just a few minutes - every single time. This workshop will cover the proper preparation, sharpening, and honing of plane irons, chisels, marking knives, carving tools, cabinet scrapers, and turning gouges. Good woodworking technique starts right here.


Note: This is a recommended foundation course.

Cost: $175
