Description: In the golden age of sail and steam many of the merchant seaman who worked on the tall ships carried their belongings in a wooden seaman's chest. Often these chests were made by the sailor's themselves before they went to sea. Simple by design they usually consisted of 6 boards and basic trim pieces and rope handles. Often the chests would be fitted with a small till below the lid to store small items. I'm am fortunate to own an just such a chest that has been passed down in my family. In this class the we will build a chest based on it. Our modern version however will have to be made from glued up boards as the wide boards originally used are very hard to find. We'll attempt to, as close as possible, build the chests as historically accurate as possible. Square nails, brass screws and dovetails will be used to assemble the chest. The chest will also be fitted with rope handles just as the originals were. The finished chest can be used as a tool chest, blanket chest, coffee table, hope chest, toy box, or any of a number of other uses. I use mine to store a lifetime of collected treasures in.

We cover removing and resetting the handle, fitting the handle ring, preparing the back, dealing with the hollow ground, blade angles and subtleties of honing with Japanese water stones. Sharpening is done by hand with no guides in the traditional manner. Next we move into the hand plane, first learning to flatten the blade backs using the "Uradashi" technique of forming the blade with a hammer and anvil. Then honing on a steel plate for perfect accuracy. Finish sharpening and trimming the blade as necessary. Next the chip breaker is carefully shaped, honed and fit to the main blade. With the blades ready, the block is trimmed as needed and fit with the blades. A scraper plane can then be set up and used to shape the plane base to the proper contours. Finally learn how to micro- adjust the blade settings and make shavings! If time allows, we can also review Japanese saws along with a demonstration of adjusting the teeth for a straight cut. This course is packed with details that usually require a lengthy apprenticeship to learn. There's a lot to cover, so bring tools, hands and be ready to work

Beginner

Part 1: Wednesday, February 27, 6 PM - 9 PM
Part 2: Wednesday, March 6, 6 PM - 9 PM

Description: This is a class that came about as a happy accident. Our carving instructor Saman wanted to add some embellishments to the leather chair he had made. On a whim he decided to burn scenes onto the leather and then embellish them with paint. As with everything he does the results were amazing! And a new class came into existence, he is very excited to share what he learned with others. So while not strictly speaking a woodworking class it uses the same tools as Wood burning so we thought why not. This class is for anyone who uses leather in their work, or for adventuress souls who like to experiment with new artistic mediums. On the first night each student will chose the design they would like to create. Saman will then demonstrate how to use your wood burning tools for leather burning and guide each student through controlling the temperature and the basic stroke work used in leather burning. The second night will be dedicated to coloring your creation with leather paints.
