Scrapers, chisels, planes (Woodworking with Hand Tools)

These edge tools work together to prepare surfaces and to refine joints. They can leave a surface of unequalled quality for finishing or gluing. They are easy to learn, quiet and satisfying to use, quick for certain jobs, and versatile. The class will show you an assortment of tools and techniques, allow some hands on time, and point to resources available for projects or for further study.

We will outline the many varieties of these tools with many samples available for detailed inspection. We will discuss basic methods and some special uses. The tools are so versatile that, with any luck, you will pick up a few new techniques and some good tips. We will discuss sharpening methods and specific sharpening considerations for different tools. Attendees will have some time to try out a few tools in each category.

This class is part of the Woodworking with hand tools series at Nova Labs. Even with a good power tool shop like ours, there is an important role for hand tools.

No prerequisite. Beginner to intermediate level, experienced woodworkers also welcome.

    Great overview information. Serves as a wonderful teaser to want to learn more about woodworking hand tools.

    If we own any of the tools that will be covered, is there any benefit to bringing them?

      In that case, I just might have to bring in my 3 cheapie planes (Groz and HF) that I acquired as sacrificial tune-up practice planes.

      I have a couple of yard sale rescue planes I've been slowly trying to refurb. I'll bring them along.

    Would a possible follow-up class be a tune-up and sharpening class if we find that there is sufficient interest?

      Possible. We will cover sharpening briefly for each group.
