    !&$#@* 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.
