Precision With Hand Tools


  • NWA - Herm Finkbinder Education Center 15 Solar Drive NY, 12065 United States

Hand tools open up new vistas of efficiency, accuracy, and enjoyment for woodworkers, even those with modest skills.  In this course, Garrett leads participants through a series of exercises to expand and refine their hand tool skills.  These include flattening boards to polished smoothness, jointing two edges to an invisible glue joint, fairing curves, fitting drawer faces, shaping and chamfering edges, making an inlay, and cutting joinery, among others.  Discussion ranges from tuning a wide variety of planes, marking tools, chisels and saws, to techniques to using them efficiently.
