Tool Sharpening for Greenwoodworking and Forestry

Sunday 22 October 2017

Venue: Low Bridge End Farm, St John's in the Vale, Keswick CA12 4TS

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Cost: £95

Learn the art of achieving and maintaining an edge on most hand tools used in green woodworking.

Having sharp tools won't necessarily improve your green woodworking skills, but it will make the work easier and safer, it will produce a better finish, and it will make the process of using hand tools considerably more satisfying.

This one-day course will provide you with the information you need to sharpen tools to a high standard.

We will concentrate on tools that are commonly used in green woodworking: axes, billhooks, drawknives, turning chisels, knives and gouges will all be covered. Powered and manual techniques will be shown.

We will also cover general care and maintenance, including using and storing tools so they keep their edge for longer.

This may be the most important course you ever attend.
