About the Course

In this one-day course we will introduce the concept of a razor sharp edge and create lots of curly shavings.

During this one day course you will be guided in the preparation and use of a hand-plane. You will learn about sharpening technique, how to set up a bench plane to achieve a fine finish and use the plane to make a small object to take away.

This course is suitable for beginners.
