Using Hand Planes with Jim Dillon

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

A well-tuned handplane 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'll get your handplane tuned up to run true. The second part is sharpening, and Jim will teach you how to sharpen with a wet wheel or with Japanese waterstones. In the last part of the class, you'll get individual coaching as you make actual shavings with your own plane. Jim will also demonstrate basic dimensioning and surfacing techniques and the use of a shooting board. Bring along your misbehaving plane for tuning.

For your safety, when attending a hands-on class, be sure to wear closed toe footwear.

Students withdrawing from a class must notify Highland Woodworking 10 or more days prior to the beginning of the class to receive full credit or refund. No refund or credit will be issued with less than 10 days' notice.
