In this workshop, Yoav will explain and demonstrate the essential initiation, sharpening, and setting up techniques common to our basic woodworking tools. We will learn how to prepare and sharpen chisels, flatten a plane’s sole and sharpen its blade. Yoav will discuss and demonstrate how to sharpen and hone carving tools such as gouges and whittling knives. We will also talk about tool maintenance, lubrication, and rust prevention. The typical sharpening and honing media, such as diamond and water stones, strops, and honing guides, will be discussed and demonstrations on how to build makeshift slip stones will be provided.
This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
