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.
