Detailed Description

Using Hand Planes with Jay Wiggins
Thursday, July 17, 2014 from 5:30pm - to 8:30pm
Class Size: 16
Hands-On Workshop

A well-tuned hand plane works with the greatest of ease, makes continuous, thin shavings, and leaves behind a surface ready for finish. If you're not getting that sort of performance from your plane, or if you do, but only sometimes, this hands-on-class will get you there.
The class is divided into three parts: in part one you will get your hand plane tuned up to run true. The second part is sharpening, and you will learn how to sharpen and hone the iron. In the last part of the class, you'll get individual coaching as you make actual shavings with your own plane. Basic dimensioning and surfacing techniques will be demonstrated along with, if time permits, how a plane works with a shooting board. Bring along your ill-tuned plane for tweaking.
