Hand Tools Workshop


Mondays, 7:00-9:00 pm for 3 weeks: 

July 15, 2019 - July 29, 2019

Learn all about the use and care of woodworking hand tools and make your very own mallet!

This workshop will be held over the course of three consecutive Monday evenings. All students will receive the following materials to work with and take home:

  • Block Plane

  • Dovetail Saw

  • 2 Chisels

  • Waterstone

  • Saw File

With these tools, you'll learn the care and maintenance of a bevel edge, toothed edge, and hooked edge. You'll learn how to optimize use for each of these tools and the basics of tooling and materiality. These core basics can be applied to an array of other woodworking tools, kitchen knives, and any other edges. Students come away with a knowledge of what materials to use for certain projects, how to get the most of your tools, and how to resolve issues when tools aren't working well. 

During the course, you’ll learn to use your tools to make your very own mallet, adding to your hand tools collection!
