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

Don't worry about getting this monster home: the bench is designed with knock-down hardware to aide in transport to your shop. Once in it's new home, though, we suggest you don't move it again - your back will thank you! All materials and standard hardware are included in the cost of the class.
