We will talk about how to choose the right saw for the job at hand and how to choose the right saw for your body. We will cut to length and rip to width materials to give you the experience of breaking down stock to rough dimension. From the rough work we will practice cutting to the line at the bench and cut a few joints with backsaws and chisel. We will introduce the use of a bench appliance, marking knives and marking gauges.
The wood we will use is furnished for the class, we will talk about bench appliances that you can build to make laying out and cutting of these joints more accurate and easier.

Class

Instructor: Brian Coe
Time: March 14th, 2020 10am-1pm
Cost: $35
Max Number of Students: 6
Requirements: If you have a plane you would like advice on, bring it!

The king in any hand tool woodworking shop is the hand plane. Capable of flattening rough-sawn lumber to smoothing the burliest board, planes can also cut joints and make beautiful molding. This class will introduce participants to a variety of historic and modern hand planes, and discuss the various pros and cons of both. Restoration and sharpening will be touched upon, but primarily the class will focus on tuning and using the most commonly found planes, the bevel-up block plane and the #4 and #5 Stanley-style metal bodied planes. We will discuss setting the chipbreaker, frog and lateral adjustments to provide a perfectly smooth surface. Participants are encouraged to bring one or two of their own misbehaving planes for evaluation and tuning. All participants will get a chance to practice hand-planing techniques during the class on both soft and hard woods. Join us to learn how to produce mountains of thin, silky-smooth shavings instead of piles of sanding dust!
