    First and most important skill in hand tool work

    I hear newer and older woodworkers say "I can't do anything with a hand plane, they just don't work for me".

    Chisels less often but they tend to be forced into work rather than the finesse they deserve.

    So, having troubles with hand planes and chisels? Most likely they are not sharp ENOUGH!

    There is sharp and then there is SHARP.

    Come and learn the biggest secret to sharpening... it takes more work than skill.

    Learn by doing.

    Date set as soon as we have enough interest shown.

    Re: First and most important skill in hand tool work

    a refresher and a good chance to get my planes and chisels back into shape sounds wonderful. I am in depending on date and time.

    As usual, my definition of sharp falls far less that what Mike defines as SHARP. depending on the date, I could be in also.

    Very interested. I would need to start from learning the basics as opposed to a refresher.

    GREAT venue! (and I say "venue" since it is more of an experience than simply a "shop")

    Re: First and most important skill in hand tool work

    I'm up for it. I hate to make it conditional but I'm starting a new job with Duke energy on June 18th. If they call I gotta go, also baby has those privileges.
