We’ll get that old dusty hand plane back into action in this one day workshop with Windsor Chairmaker Luke Barnett. We will polish, sharpen and tune up the body of your hand plane to get it into user ready condition. The key to using hand tools correctly is a sharp edge and proper set up - learn how the masters make it look so easy. Learn several techniques to make your hand plane “shaving sharp” and get ready to make paper thin shavings. Students are encouraged to bring along their own hand planes, but shop tools are also available.

No experience required. High quality sharpening tools will be provided.
