!&$#@* Sharp

Honing Hand Tools In the Japanese Fashion

When you want your joints and finished surfaces to come out just right, there’s no substitute for a perfectly sharp edge.  In this class, you’ll learn how to create and maintain one on chisels and plane irons. We’ll start with a bit of theory, and introduce the basic tool kit, but most of the time will be devoted to turning neglected edges into gleaming blades.  You are welcome to bring your own tools and waterstones, but the HatchSpace will also have on hand everything you need for the class.

Introduction to the X-Carve and CNC Skills

Come learn how to use the x-carve, a hobby-level CNC router that uses a Dewalt trim router and is controlled by free software. The x-carve can be used to do a wide range of  two-dimensional milling. There is a huge community of x-carve users that share tips, tricks and project plans on the internet. In this class you’ll learn the basic operation of both the x-carve machine as well as how to control it through the Easel cloud-based software. The class will prepare you to be able to design and create projects with support from Hatchspace staff.

Gail will take the class through aesthetic and functional considerations, guiding participants through three dimensional drawings, joinery and detail options, and a cut list for use in the wood shop.
